Security vulnerabilities and software defects are prevalent in software systems, threatening every aspect of cyberspace. The complexity of modern software makes it hard to secure systems. Security vulnerabilities and software defects become a major target of cyberattacks which can lead to significant consequences. Manual identification of vulnerabilities and defects in software systems is very time-consuming and tedious. Many tools have been designed to help analyze software systems and to discover vulnerabilities and defects. However, these tools tend to miss various types of bugs. The bugs that are not caught by these tools usually include vulnerabilities and defects that are too complicated to find or do not fall inside of an existing rule-set for identification. It was hypothesized that these undiscovered vulnerabilities and defects do not occur randomly, rather, they share certain common characteristics. A methodology was proposed to detect the probability of a bug existing in a code structure. We used a comprehensive experimental evaluation to assess the methodology and report our findings.

Vulnerability being the buzz word in the modern time is the most important jargon related to software and operating system. Since every now and then, software is developed some loopholes and incompleteness lie in the development phase, so there always remains a vulnerability of abruptness in it which can come into picture anytime. Detecting vulnerability is one thing and predicting its occurrence in the due course of time is another thing. If we get to know the vulnerability of any software in the due course of time then it acts as an active alarm for the developers to again develop sound and improvised software the second time. The proposal talks about the implementation of the idea using the artificial neural network, where different data sets are being given as input for being used for further analysis for successful results. As of now, there are models for studying the vulnerabilities in the software and networks, this paper proposal in addition to the current work, will throw light on the predictability of vulnerabilities over the due course of time.
