CWE CATEGORY: OWASP Top Ten 2013 Category A9 - Using Components with Known Vulnerabilities
Use for Mapping: Prohibited (this CWE ID must not be used to map to real-world vulnerabilities).
Rationale: this entry is a Category. Using categories for mapping has been an actively discouraged practice since at least 2019. Categories are informal organizational groupings of weaknesses that help navigation and browsing by CWE users, but they are not weaknesses in themselves.
Comments: See member weaknesses of this category.
This is an unusual category. CWE does not cover the limitations of human processes and procedures that cannot be described in terms of a specific technical weakness as resident in the code, architecture, or configuration of the software. Since "known vulnerabilities" can arise from any kind of weakness, it is not possible to map this OWASP category to other CWE entries, since it would effectively require mapping this category to ALL weaknesses.
