Many software applications are endangered by using buggy components

June 29, 2015  Security Suite

Many software companies use open-source components in their software. Flaws in such 3rd party components make whole applications vulnerable, especially if the companies have bad inventory practices and thus are not aware of known flaws in used components. Once a vulnerability gets into an application through a component dependency, it stays there usually for a very long time, possibly forever. This can be a serious problem when considering Internet-of-Things devices (e.g. smart cars), which uses software developed exactly the same way as other software and which depend on the 3rd party . However, these problems can be solved by using specialized software that allows which components and their versions can be used during developing software.
