BugSpy – Crawls The Web For Open Source Software Bugs

Outsmart Malicious Hackers

BugSpy is an interesting web site I came across recently, put together using a Python Framework (django) it aggregates bugs from as many open source projects as it can find. Preferably critical bugs.


You can search by tag (e.g java, email or php ) or by product name (e.g Ubuntu, Typo3 or Samba).

    There was another attempt at a site like this a few yrs ago…..don’t exactly remember the name…..tht one lasted for a very small time, hoping tht bugspy lasts longer!!

    The “Exploitables Detector” link (http://bugspy.net/exposer) is interesting. From what I understand, it tries to guess which bugs pose security vulnerabilities.

    Don’t know about earlier ones but I know there is also the opensourcedb which is doing roughly the same thing, only via email notification.

    Also, if anyone cares to you can normally sign up for maillist of bugtraq and others to get similar info.

    Nice work, specially exposer section. This will make a step closer to a full disclosure script kiddie in my opinion.

    Does this scan for known vulns or does it search through the source code and find them itself?

    I believe it pulls the info from the bug repository of all the projects and aggregates it, it doesn’t scan code for ‘new’ bugs.
