A race condition occurs when a pair of routine programming calls in an application do not perform in the sequential manner that was intended per business rules. It is a timing event within software that can become a security vulnerability if the calls are not performed in the correct order.
- A common business impact of a race condition is one where a payment confirmation occurs without producing a request object for order fulfillment.
- The technical impact of this vulnerability can be mitigated through thread management classes or other programming constructs that control the synchronization of threads
