Is the Open Source You Use a Security Risk?

Most organizations are aware of or using open source or open source software. Even big companies that had been focused on close source in the past have been transitioning to more open coding. Not all open source code is created the same, and thus not all open source software should be treated the same.

Black Duck did an analysis of code in 2017 that found that 97% of the 1,071 applications they reviewed contained open source. Over half of those applications had severe open source vulnerabilities, and over 67% of the total had some sort of vulnerability.
