The software receives input from an upstream component, but it does not account for byte ordering (e.g. big-endian and little-endian) when processing the input, causing an incorrect number or value to be used.

Technical Impact: Unexpected state
Because byte ordering bugs are usually very noticeable even with
normal inputs, this bug is more likely to occur in rarely triggered
error conditions, making them difficult to detect using black box
