There are some packages using which you can see whether the code is
vulnerable or not. Or give to the programmers and tell them to exaplin the
code and what it does. Best place to get this is freshmeat.net
Another way is run it on a seperate machine which is not connected to the
network and see whether it opens any port at any time(by seeing the log
files you should knowing this.)
