Flawfinder searches through source code looking for potential security flaws.
Version: 1.27Flawfinder searches through source code looking for potential security flaws. This is the main web site for flawfinder, a program that examines source code and reports possible security weaknesses (``flaws'') sorted by risk level. It's very useful for quickly finding and removing at least some potential security problems before a program is widely released to the public.
