WhatIs: Security Hole

If a system has a mechanism to deny illegitimate access, that system is said to be secure. If there is a situation in which the mechanism fails to deny illegitimate access due to an error or flaw in it, people say that there is a security weakness, or a security vulnerability, or a security hole in that system.

the system can be a PC, or a router, or a smartphone, or a "smart" car, or a SoC device, or something like that. it can also be referred to an encryption algorithm, or a database, or an operating system, or an online server, or something like that.

Backdoors can often be exploited as security holes.
