Abstract

In this work, we append our historical study on the most significant software security weaknesses, re-evaluate our findings, and look closely at the Injection and Memory Corruption/Disclosure weaknesses through the NIST Bugs Framework (BF) lenses. Our goal is to continue raising awareness about the patterns of reoccurring software security vulnerabilities that enable malicious activity.
