PROPOSAL: Cluster 32 - DATA (10 candidates)



Most of the following candidates are affected by the Data Access
content decisions described previously.  Note the use of the term
"inappropriate," which has a semi-formal definition in the context of
Data Access.

Some of these candidates would appear to be at a high level.  In
addition, my definition of "system-critical" could be difficult to
assess from an automated tool perspective.  I think that these
candidates illustrate how far away we are from being able to
effectively describe the nature of such vulnerabilities.  However,
many tools are beginning to focus on these sorts of problems, so we
could be well served to ensure that we have some CVE vulnerabilities
which attempt to capture this.
