The CPython source code is irregularly scanned by different code analysis tools. The results shown extremely high quality of code in comparison with other open source and proprietary code. Most of reports are false positive. Last time real bugs (2 or 3) was discovered by tools several years ago, and one of these bugs was already known and did have a patch on review.

So while new tools can discover new bugs (unnoticed by previous scans or recently added), it is expected that most or all reports be false positive.
