PROPOSAL: Cluster 31 - CFMISC (18 candidates)



The following candidates are miscellaneous configuration problems.
Some are likely to get REJECTed.  Others illustrate some challenges
with respect to describing configuration problems, either at the right
level of abstraction, or when the configuration provides some access
to an individual, but only the enterprise can know if that particular
individual should have that access.

Most of these vulnerabilities are reported by security tools.
