Concurrent Execution using Shared Resource with Improper Synchronization ('Race Condition')
A race condition existed when reading and writing user preferences. This was addressed with improved state handling. This issue is fixed in macOS Catalina 10.15. The "Share Mac Analytics" setting may not be disabled when a user deselects the switch to share analytics.
CWE-362 - Race Condition
A race condition occurs in a shared memory program when two threads/processes access the same shared memory data, and at least one thread executes a write operation. This vulnerability manipulates the time to check vs. time to use (TOC/TOU) gap between the threads in the critical section to cause disorientation in the shared data. The impact can vary from compromising the confidentiality of the system to causing the system to crash or to execute arbitrary code.
