Graudit v1.4 released

Graudit is a simple script and signature sets that allows you to find potential security flaws in source code using the GNU utility grep. It’s comparable to other static analysis applications like RATS, SWAAT and flaw-finder while keeping the technical requirements to a minimum and being very flexible.

Version 1.4

  • New and improved signatures
  • Graceful detection of grep version < 2.5.3
  • Preparing for version 1.5

Graudit supports several options and tries to follow good shell practices. For a list of the options you can run graudit -h or see below.

The simplest way to use graudit is;
graudit <options> /path/to/scan

The following options are available:

  • -h prints a short help text
  • -v prints version number
  • -d database to use
  • -c number of lines of context to display, default is 2
  • -z supress colors
