Initialize variables explicitly

Summary

All the variables in the source code must be explicitly initialized.

Description

Uninitialized variables can lead to undefined behavior, unpredictable outcomes, and potential security vulnerabilities. Explicit initialization helps to mitigate the risk of using variables before they have been assigned with a valid value, reducing the likelihood of bugs and vulnerabilities, such as buffer overflows or memory corruption.
