Tool Kills Hidden Linux Bugs, Vulnerabilities 47

mask.of.sanity writes with this excerpt from SC Magazine: "Australian researcher Silvio Cesare has released a tool capable of automatically detecting bugs and vulnerabilities in embedded Linux libraries. The script correlates vulnerability advisory CVEs for third-party libraries to determine if holes have carried over to Linux platforms or have not been patched. Such holes often escape the eye of developers because the libraries may not be kept updated with sources. This is further compounded because vulnerabilities in cross distributed packages can leave Linux platforms vulnerable."
