Source Code Audit reviews are an effective method for finding bugs that can be difficult or impossible to find during black box or grey box testing. BY doing this we are able to quickly assess code and get a hint about all vulnerabilities discovered during the analysis part.
Source code analysis not only identifies which statement on which line of code is vulnerable, but is also able to identify the tainted variable that introduces the vulnerability. In this way it illustrates the propagation from root cause, to end result. This provides application developers with an end to end overview of each instance of vulnerability, allowing them to quickly understand the nature of the problem.
What are the challenges faced during Source Code Review
Since applications contain bugs; there exists a possibility that an attacker might be able to exploit some of them to impact or gain access to your information assets and capabilities. Web applications in particular are more be affected by these vulnerabilities, as they are frequently developed and deployed quickly in production in short durations without sufficient time spent in security testing. We have a rigorous methodology for reviewing web application code.
