eWEEK – Sean Michael Kerner – 10/23/17
When building and deploying applications, developers continue to make same security errors year after year, according to a new study from Veracode. The 44-page Veracode 2017 State of Software Security (SOSS) report was released on Oct. 18, providing insight from 400,000 software assessments conducted by Veracode between April 1, 2016, and March 31, 2017. Among the high-level findings in the report is that the same classes of vulnerabilities continue to be found in similar percentages in the last several years. Of note, Veracode found that 88 percent of Java applications that were scanned had at least one vulnerable component. In this slide show, eWEEK looks at some of the highlights from Veracode's latest State of Software Security report.
