MemberOfCategoryCategory - a CWE entry that contains a set of other entries that share a common characteristic.18Source Code
MemberOfViewView - a subset of CWE entries that provides a way of examining CWE content. The two main view structures are Slices (flat lists) and Graphs (containing relationships between entries).635Weaknesses Originally Used by NVD from 2008 to 2016
