Vulnerabilities in OSs are inclined to depend on weaknesses in configuration of access management matrices to achieve entry to software applications and system software. This creates a significant issue since vulnerabilities can exploit software purposes by way of the OS gain access and in the end take over the system.

Publically out there source code gives attackers the power to seek for vulnerabilities and flaws and thus enhance the publicity of the system. Second, making the source code publicly available doesn’t assure that a qualified individual will look at the source and consider it.
