Rule:  SecurityCodeGuidelines2Checked automatically with code checker

This rule is Obsolete
Synopsis:User-supplied arrays should be copied before use
Language:Java
Severity Level:2
Category:SecurityCodeGuidelines


Description:
Constructors and methods receiving arrays should clone objects and store the copy. This prevents that future changes from the user affect the internal functionality.
public class Foo {
 private String [] x;
  public void foo (String [] param) {
      // Don't do this, make a copy of the array at least
      this.x=param;
  }
}
