Rough Auditing Tool for Security
RATS(Rough Auditing Tool for Security) scans through code, finding potentially dangerous function calls. The goal of this tool is not to definitively find bugs (yet). The current goal is to provide a reasonable starting point for performing manual security audits. The initial vulnerability database is taken directly from things that could be easily found when starting with the forthcoming book, "Building Secure Software" by Viega and McGraw.
