Overview: The announcement of another computer virus threatening the business and home computers is starting to be a regularly expected occurrence. Moreover, one has come to accept the installation of a software patch as the preferred means to stopping such viruses. This research paper focuses on source code analysis. Security experts have developed several software tools that provide a security audit of C and C++ source code. These tools, in short, check for known security vulnerabilities. The researchers in this area are concentrating on the collection of information about functions and data constructs that pose a risk to the security of a computer system.
