CompTIA Security+ Question J-6

Which of the following is an application security coding problem?

A. Error and exception handling
B. Patch management
C. Application hardening
D. Application fuzzing

Answer: A

Exception handling is an aspect of secure coding. When errors occur, the system should revert back to a secure state. This must be coded into the system by the programmer, and should capture errors and exceptions so that they could be handled by the application.
