Flawfinder 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. See ``how does Flawfinder work?'', below, for more information on how it works.

Flawfinder is specifically designed to be easy to install and use. After installing it, in a text terminal just type:

flawfinder directory_with_source_code

Flawfinder works on Unix-like systems today (it's been tested on GNU/Linux), and it should be easy to port to Windows systems. It requires Python 1.5 or greater to run (Python 1.3 or earlier won't work).

What's New in This Release:
  • Released version 1.26.
  • NOTE: Due to an error on my part,
  • the tar file for version 1.25 was for a short period (after 2004-06-05) actually version 1.26, incorrectly labelled as 1.25.
  • My sincere apologies!! Please upgrade to 1.26, since that way you'll be SURE to get the right version.
