DescriptionThis weakness takes a value and converts it to upper case.
If it contains characters not a-zA-Z, then the function
used to covert to upper case will return null. After
converting the value to upper case it is compared to a static
password. This comparison will cause an error if the
value contained a number, punctuation, space, etc.
