Improper type assignation


There are variant variables in the source code, i.e., no specific type is declared for them. This can be inefficient, as it becomes necessary to identify the variable's data type and cast it every time it is used.


Result in modification of that resource by unintended parties.


Check to see if the resource has insecure permissions (such as being modifiable by any regular user), and generate an error or even exit the software if there is a possibility that the resource could have been modified by an unauthorized party.


Authenticated external attacker.
