Builder.com.au:
LAMP lights way on open source security
March 07, 2006 @ 07:25:42

From Builder.co.au, there's this new article that talks about the LAMP software, how's it's "showing the way" to Open Source security.

The most popular open-source software is also the most free of bugs, according to the first results of a U.S. government-sponsored effort to help make such software as secure as possible.

The so-called LAMP stack of open-source software has a lower bug density--the number of bugs per thousand lines of code--than a baseline of 32 open-source projects analysed, Coverity, a maker of code analysis tools, announced Monday.

The results are a product of a Homeland Security effort (performed by Stanford University) for three years. They found that the LAMP combination contained about 0.434 bugs per 1,000 lines of code. Unfortunately, their results also showed, of those problems, PHP had the higest bug count of the four.
