The goal of this research project was to identify categories of programming flaws that lead to software bugs and index existing vulnerability reports against those categories. A keyword-based search placed 70% of the records from the OSVDB and CVE databases into 15 vulnerability categories. The results identified malformed data, buffer overflow and cross-site scripting as the top three issues. The project laid the foundations for future research into ways of mitigating programming flaws.
