OWASP Find Security Bugs

Find Security Bugs logo

Find Security Bugs is a SpotBugs plugin for security audits of Java web applications and Android applications. It can detect 128 different vulnerability types including Command Injection, XPath Injection, SQL/HQL Injection, XXE and Cryptography weaknesses. SpotBugs is a static analysis tool that targets Java but also works with Groovy, Scala and Kotlin projects.


This software is released under LGPL.


Theses are the current priorities:

  • Release a new version every few months.
  • Improve the quality of the static analysis detectors
  • Continue working on finding new vulnerabilities ideas and implementing detectors if there is an opportunity.
  • Improving the documentation for new contributors.

The complete roadmap is kept up to date on GitHub in the milestones section.
