OPEN SOURCE SOFTWARE SECURITY

 

There are two types of organizations: organizations that use open source software components and organizations that do not know that they are already using open source software components. Almost all modern applications used today leverage open source components.

 

Although open source software greatly helps delivering software to the market rapidly, if not managed properly, it may pose serious security and license related risks. Take Apache Struts, a well known open source component used in thousands of applications if not millions, brought many organizations including Equifax and Canada Revenue Agency to shut down the operations.
