Default Trapped dishwasher drain pipe

The copper pipe attached to the trap attached to the cast iron waste is the drain for the dishwasher. Aside from contadct of dissimilar metals and not being installed to the manufacturer's recommendations, just what is the defect here?
It doesn't look like contamination of the cabinet from siphoning would be a problem.
