VeraTalks: What Holds Developers Back From Addressing Security Vulnerabilities?

Presented by

Tim Jarrett, Sr. Director of Product Management

About this talk

Our recent State of Software Security report found that 97 percent of typical Java applications are made up of open source libraries. Unfortunately, 79 percent of developers never update third-party libraries after including them in a codebase … resulting in an unnecessary amount of vulnerabilities and technical debt. What if developers realized that 92 percent of library flaws can be fixed with an update? Or that 69 percent of library updates are a minor version change or less? Join us as we discuss the common misconceptions around open source flaws and show you just how easy it is to find and fix library flaws.
