How it works
Graudit is short for Grep rough audit. Not surprisingly, it uses the GNU grep utility to find security flaws in source code. The tool has a set of database files that include patterns for each supported programming language. It uses these patterns to evaluate the code and see if there are any positive matches. If the tool finds a match, it will display this.
