Code Vigilant project is created out of the need to have a more secure open source software. It is a known fact that a large number of users use opensource software but a very few of them contribute back in terms of identifying and making these opensource software a more secure piece of software.
As part of the initial experiment WordPress was selected and close to 28K wordpress plugin’s were evaluated where by resulting in 250+ security issues being identified in them. The next phase we are focusing on multiple softwares and are aiming for 500+ issues identification.
The Issue identification technique followed are a combination of blackbox plus whitebox analysis and cross validation.
