For open source software such as Firefox, Eclipse, Subversion,. . . they usually have a system for bug management that sent by users. These bug reports help the system identify various software bugs which makes software maintenance better. However, a situation occurs that there are many error reports sent to  the processing repository that these bug reports were previously reported by different users, this is called duplicate bug reports. In this paper, we introduce a multi-feature model combined with weighted improvements from CFC (ClassFeature-Centroid) to detect duplicate bug reportsautomatically. We have experimented on three projects of Mozilla, Eclipse and OpenOffice. The results show that our method can improve 8-12% better as compared to the compared methods.
