Static Source Code Audit On Terminal Using Bash Functions

For anyone that has done a long source code audit is not about really finding the easy/low hanging fruit stuff that can be slow and sometimes a bit “frustrating”. I recently had a nice 660,000 lines of code source code audit to be done in less than 2 weeks, the language was Java, so the first thing that was to be done (they had already hit fortify and other tools with it) and were looking for a bit of more interesting stuff apparently. This raised some specific problems while working and finding the vulnerabilities and exploitability of them.

Zen Cart Ultimate SEO URL Install Error, cannot redeclare zen_reset_cache_data_seo_urls()

Earlier I was working on a Zen Cart site and ran into an issue installing the Ultimate SEO URL add-on. The Ultimate SEO URL add-on creates more SEO(Search Engine Optimization) friendly URL’s for Zen Cart. The site in question already had a previous version of the Ultimate SEO URL add-on installed and once I was finished the front-end of the site was working perfectly with the new SEO friendly URL’s. The problem was when I attempted to login to the admin portion of the Zen Cart site I was receiving a “500 – Internal Server Error” message. Below I have noted information on what was done to troubleshoot the problem as well as how the problem was resolved.
