Open source is at the center of today's software and is essential for innovation and efficiency. But is all open source a safe source?
More than 58 million known vulnerable components were downloaded in the past year -- even when safer versions are available. It's no surprise that a recent survey revealed that 33% of organizations had or suspected an open source-related breach.
Why build known vulnerabilities into your software, then spend even more time to get them back out? This booklet describes the six most Common Vulnerability Types (CVTs), ways to avoid open source risk and a free tool you can use to create a "bill of materials" of all the components in an application and identify known security, license and quality risks.
