Forgotten Check

Does the fix for the vulnerability involve adding a forgotten check? A "forgotten check" can mean many things. It often manifests as the fix inserting an entire if-statement or a conditional to an existing if-statement. Or a call to a method that checks something. Example of checks can include: * null pointer checks * check the current role, e.g. root * boundary checks for a number * consult file permissions * check a return value
