Source Code Analysis Tools


Source Code Analysis tools are designed to analyze source code and/or compiled version of code in order to help find security flaws. Ideally, such tools would automatically find security flaws with a high degree of confidence that what is found is indeed a flaw. However, this is beyond the state of the art for many types of application security flaws. Thus, such tools frequently serve as aids for an analyst to help them zero in on security relevant portions of code so they can find flaws more efficiently, rather than a tool that simply finds flaws automatically.

Open Source or Free Tools Of This Type

  • FindBugs - Find Bugs (including some security flaws) in Java Programs
  • FxCop (Microsoft) - FxCop is an application that analyzes managed code assemblies (code that targets the .NET Framework common language runtime) and reports information about the assemblies, such as possible design, localization, performance, and security improvements.
  • PMD - PMD scans Java source code and looks for potential code problems (this is a code quality tool that does not focus on security issues)
  • PreFast (Microsoft) - PREfast is a static analysis tool that identifies defects in C/C++ programs
  • RATS (Fortify) - Scans C, C++, Perl, PHP and Python source code for security problems like buffer overflows and TOCTOU (Time Of Check, Time Of Use) race conditions
  • SWAAT - Simplistic Beta Tool - Languages: Java, JSP, ASP .Net, and PHP
  • Flawfinder Flawfinder - Scans C and C++

Commercial Tools from OWASP Members Of This Type

These vendors have decided to support OWASP by becoming members. OWASP appreciates the support from these organizations, but cannot endorse any commercial products or services.

What Is a Hacker ?

                The Jargon File contains a bunch of definitions of the term ‘hacker’, most having to do with technical adeptness and a delight in solving problems and overcoming limits. If you want to know how to become a hacker, though, only two are really relevant.

There is a community, a shared culture, of expert programmers and networking wizards that traces its history back through decades to the first time-sharing minicomputers and the earliest ARPAnet experiments. The members of this culture originated the term ‘hacker’. Hackers built the Internet. Hackers made the Unix operating system what it is today. Hackers run Usenet. Hackers make the World Wide Web work. If you are part of this culture, if you have contributed to it and other people in it know who you are and call you a hacker, you're a hacker.

The hacker mind-set is not confined to this software-hacker culture. There are people who apply the hacker attitude to other things, like electronics or music — actually, you can find it at the highest levels of any science or art. Software hackers recognize these kindred spirits elsewhere and may call them ‘hackers’ too — and some claim that the hacker nature is really independent of the particular medium the hacker works in. But in the rest of this document we will focus on the skills and attitudes of software hackers, and the traditions of the shared culture that originated the term ‘hacker’.

There is another group of people who loudly call themselves hackers, but aren't. These are people (mainly adolescent males) who get a kick out of breaking into computers and phreaking the phone system. Real hackers call these people ‘crackers’ and want nothing to do with them. Real hackers mostly think crackers are lazy, irresponsible, and not very bright, and object that being able to break security doesn't make you a hacker any more than being able to hotwire cars makes you an automotive engineer. Unfortunately, many journalists and writers have been fooled into using the word ‘hacker’ to describe crackers; this irritates real hackers no end.

The basic difference is this: hackers build things, crackers break them.

If you want to be a hacker, keep reading. If you want to be a cracker, go read the alt.2600 newsgroup and get ready to do five to ten in the slammer after finding out you aren't as smart as you think you are. And that's all I'm going to say about crackers.

10 Principles for Peace of Mind

1. Do Not Interfere In Others' Business Unless Asked.
Most of us create our own problems by interfering too often
in others' affairs. We do so because somehow we have
convinced ourselves that our way is the best way, our logic
is the perfect logic and those who do not conform to our
thinking must be criticized and steered to the right
direction, our direction. This thinking denies the existence
of individuality and consequently the existence of God.. God has created
each one of us in a unique way. No two human beings can
think or act in exactly the same way. All men or women act
the way they do because God within them prompts them that
way. Mind your own business and you will keep your peace.
2. Forgive And Forget:
This is the most powerful
aid to peace of mind. We often develop ill feelings inside
our heart for the person who insults us or harms us. We
nurture grievances. This in turn results in loss of sleep,
development of stomach ulcers, and high blood
pressure. This insult or injury was done once, but
nourishing of grievance goes on forever by constantly
remembering it. Get over this bad habit. Life is too short
to waste in such trifles. Forgive,20Forget, and march on.
Love flourishes in giving and forgiving.
3. Do Not Crave For Recognition:

This world is full of selfish people. They seldom praise
anybody without selfish motives. They may praise you today
because you are in power, but no sooner than you are
powerless, they will forget your achievement and will start
finding faults in you. Why do you wish to kill yourse lf in
striving for their recognition? Their recognition
is not worth the aggravation. Do your duties ethically and
 4. Do Not Be Jealous:
We all have experienced how jealousy can disturb our peace
of mind. You know that you work harder than your colleagues
in the office, but sometimes they get promotions; you do
not. You started a business several years ago, but you are
not as successful as your neighbor whose business is only
one year old. There are several examples like these in
everyday life. Should you be jealous? No. Remember
everybody's life is shaped by his/her destiny, which has
now become his/her reality. If you are destined to be rich,
nothing in the world can stop you. If you are not so
destined, no one can help you either. Nothing will be gained
by blaming others for your misfortune. Jealousy will not get
you anywhere; it will only take away your peace of mind.
5. Change Yourself According To The Environment:
If you try to change the
environment single-handedly, the chances are you will
fail. Instead, change yourself to suit your environment. As
you do this, even the environment, which has been unfriendly
to you, will mysteriously change and seem congenial and
6. Endure What Cannot Be Cured:
This is the best way to turn a disadvantage into an
advantage. Every day we face numerous inconveniences,
ailments, irritations, and accidents that are beyond our
control. If we cannot control them or change them, we must
learn to put up with these things. We must learn to endure
them cheerfully. Believe in yourself and you will gain in
terms of patience, inner strength and will power.
7. Do Not Bite Off More Than You Can Chew:
This maxim needs to be remembered constantly. We often tend
to take more responsibilities than we are capable of
carrying out. This is done to satisfy our ego. Know your
limitations. . Why take on additional loads that may create
more worries? You cannot gain peace of mind by expanding
your external activities. Reduce your material engagements
and spend time in prayer, introspection and meditation. This
will reduce those thoughts in your mind that make
you restless. Uncluttered mind will produce greater peace of
 8. Meditate Regularly:

Meditation calms the mind and gets
rid of disturbing thoughts. This is the highest state of
peace of mind. Try and experience it yourself. If you
meditate earnestly for half an hour everyday, your mind will
tend to become peaceful during the remaining twenty-three
and half-hours. Your mind will not be easily disturbed as it
was before. You would benefit by gradually increasing the
period of daily meditation. You may think
that this
will interfere with your daily work. On the contrary, this
will increase your efficiency and you will be able to
produce better results in less time.
9. Never Leave The Mind Vacant:
An empty mind is the devil's workshop. All evil actions
start in the vacant mind. Keep your mind occupied in
something positive, something worthwhile. Actively follow a
hobby. Do something that holds your interest. You must
decide what you value more: money or peace of mind. Your
hobby, like social work or religious work, may not always
earn you more money, but you will have a sense of
fulfillment and achievement. Even when you are resting
physically, occupy yourself in healthy reading or mental
chanting of God's name.
10. Do Not Procrastinate And Never Regret:
Do not waste time in protracted wondering " Should I
or shouldn't I?" Days, weeks, months, and years may
be wasted in that futile mental debating. You can never plan
enough because you
can never anticipate all future happenings. Value your
time and do the things that need to be done. It does not
matter if you fail the first time. You can learn from your
mistakes and succeed the next time. Sitting back and
worrying will lead to nothing. Learn from your mistakes, but
do not brood over the past. DO NOT REGRET. Whatever happened
was destined to happen only that way. Why cry over spilt milk?

Wanna Become a Quiet Person in Office

  1. Try taking a "vow of silence" for a short period of time. Maybe you can be completely silent for an hour. Then try three hours. If you can make it to a whole day, you might find yourself observing more around you that you never noticed before because you were too busy chatting and drawing attention to yourself.

2.      Practice being a good listener. A good listener gives the other person room to talk and vent. If you're a loud person, you're probably the one always doing the talking, and you might need some work on your listening skills. 

  1. Think Before Speaking. One helpful tip is that whenever you're about to say something, wait three seconds before saying it. Sometimes you'll realize it doesn't need to be said at all! This will also give you a little bit of time to reconsider what you're saying.

4.      Communicate With Body Language. Speaking and making noise isn't the only way to get your message across. The way you sit, eye contact, and posture will tell people how you feel, whether they realize it consciously or not.
    • If you don't portray confident body language, people might think you're quiet because you're nervous and shy, rather than on purpose.

5.      Get in touch with your inner self. If you talk a lot, you're probably an extrovert--someone who gets a lot of energy from interacting with the outside world. But you can be an introvert, too. Pay attention to what goes on inside you more, and learn to enjoy it. Indulge in your thoughts, creativity, fantasies, and anything that's just you (make sure it is you though and not someone else).

Medical : Heart & Warm Water

A very good article which takes two minutes to read. I'm sending this to persons I care about.......I hope you do too!!!

Heart Attacks And Drinking Warm Water

This is a very good article. Not only about the warm water after your meal, but about Heart Attack s . The Chinese and Japanese drink hot tea with their meals, not cold water, maybe it is time we adopt their drinking habit while eating. 

For those who like to drink cold water, this article is applicable to you. It is nice to have a cup of cold drink after a meal. However, the cold water will solidify the oily stuff that you have just consumed. It will slow down the digestion. Once this 'sludge' reacts with the acid, it will break down and be absorbed by the
intestine faster than the solid food. It will line the intestine. Very soon, this will turn into fats and lead to cancer . It is best to drink hot soup or warm water after a meal.

French fries and Burgers are the biggest enemy of heart health. A coke after that gives more power to this demon.  Avoid them for your Heart's Health

Common Symptoms Of Heart Attack...

A serious note about heart attacks - You should know that not every heart attack symptom is going to be the
left arm hurting . Be aware of intense pain in the jaw line.

You may never have the first
chest pain during the course of a heart attack. Nausea and intense sweating are also common symptoms. 60% of people who have a heart attack while they are asleep do not wake up.  Pain in the jaw can wake you from a sound sleep. Let's be careful and be aware. The more we know, the better chance we could survive.

cardiologist says if everyone who reads this message sends it to 10 people, you can be sure that we'll save at least one life.  Read this & Send to a friend.  It could save a life... So, please be a true friend and send this article to all your friends you care about.
