By source code review you can mitigate your vulnerabilities from core functions
Source code security analysis (source code review) is the examination of an application source code to find errors overlooked in the initial development phase. A code analyzer is used by the tester to scan line-by-line the code of an application. After deploying the analyzer in the environment, the pentester manually tries to eliminate the found vulnerabilities.
There are many problems occurring for not having the appropriate source code review. Four of the major vulnerabilities are- Encryption errors, SQL injection, XSS vulnerabilities, Buffer overflows and Race conditions. The first problem includes weak encryption algorithms, as well as strong encryption algorithms with weak implementation (e.g., insecure key storage). When more data is put into the buffer than it can handle, it causes buffer overflows. Race conditions happen when more than one operation is performed at the same time.
For the best output of the source code review, it is built keeping in mind some main goals. They are-
