From the article:

PVS-Studio has plugins for various JetBrains IDEs: Rider, IntelliJ IDEA. Somehow we missed another popular IDE — CLion. Our clients expressed an increasing interest in this feature. Moreover, the PVS-Studio plugin for CLion as a cross-platform IDE would make it possible to work comfortably with the C++ analyzer regardless of the environment in which the developer works: on Windows, Linux or macOS.

From the article:

When working on a task developers take code from so many various places. A popular source of Copy-Paste code is the Stackoverflow website and similar ones. There are cases when a developer takes the code from an open source project and doesn't check license requirements. Thus, a closed source project may accidentally get a few files from an open source project with a Copyleft license, which obliges to make the entire project code open source. In companies with a large number of employees, it's difficult to keep track of this, whereas such actions might cause adverse risks and problems. So, PVS-Studio now has a diagnostic, which will help to find such files. It relates to all supported languages (C, C++, C#, Java). The diagnostic is looking for the following "virus" licenses: AGPL-3.0, GPL-2.0, GPL-3.0, LGPL-3.0.
