State of DevSecOps

Shipping secure code rapidly and at scale is a challenge across the software industry, as evidenced by continued news of high-profile data breaches and critical vulnerabilities. To address this challenge, organizations are increasingly adopting DevSecOps, a practice in which application developers work closely alongside operations and security teams throughout the development life cycle.

Product Security Plans: What They Are and Why They Matter

A product is only as secure as its weakest link. That is why many talented security engineers and researchers recommend embedding security as early in the software development life cycle (SDLC) as possible, even from the very first line of code. Or better yet, even before the very first line of code, during the threat modeling and architecture phase. Smart people have been saying this for a very long time. So, why does product security still remain difficult?

CVE 2023-2033: What is it, and how to fix it?

Zero-day vulnerabilities are the surprise no developer wants to get. Because these security flaws are unknown to developers, they have zero days to prepare or mitigate the vulnerability before an exploit can occur. 62% of vulnerabilities were first exploited as zero-day vulnerabilities, so they are far more prevalent than we think. Even Google Chrome can attest to that after discovering a series of zero-day vulnerabilities that left its billions of users at risk in 2023.

Step-by-Step Guide to Preventing JavaScript Injections

If over 40 major banks can be the target of JavaScript injection attacks, let’s be honest – so can you. In 2023, a malware campaign using this attack method affected 50,000 user sessions across more than 40 financial institutions worldwide, leaving many dev teams in pure damage-control mode. 67.9% of professional developers use JavaScript more often than any other programming language. Its popularity is understandable, given its versatile and interactive capabilities.
