A security researcher claims that he found nearly 27,000 bugs in Samsung's Tizen operating system, although Samsung has been told about the bugs, but rejected the findings and said the company has launched a bug job inside Samsung.
Program Verification System Chief technical officer Andre Karpov uses PVs studio to start looking for Tizen errors, checking only 3.3% of the code, and finding not less than 900 bugs. Although he paused the bug lookup before parsing the complete code, the researcher said he estimated 27,000 bugs in the Tizen code.
"I've analyzed more than 240,000 lines of code (excluding comments)," says Andre Karpov. I detect 900 bugs. The entire Tizen project has 72500 000 lines C, C + + code (excluding comments) from the third-party library. This means that I have only checked 3.3% of the code, and I estimate that there are approximately 27,187 bugs (72500000 * 900/2400000 = 27187) for the entire system. He explains that using Pvs-studio can detect and fix these bugs.
Andre Karpov said he had contacted Samsung earlier this year to report the findings, but the company's team declined to investigate. Samsung says it currently has its own static analysis tools and is often run for Tizen. However, Samsung does not agree that Tizen has 27,000 bugs that should be repaired. Samsung has not yet provided an official statement that Tizen has so many bugs, but will soon unveil some clarifications and explanations.
