Extended Description

This weakness can take several forms, such as:

Potential Mitigations

  • Use a vetted library or framework that does not allow this weakness to occur or provides constructs that make this weakness easier to avoid.
  • For example, glibc in Linux provides protection against free of invalid pointers.
