Open source software provides companies with a competitive edge but when used incorrectly, it can lead to risks in the software supply chain. Today’s modern software applications simply would not exist, or be as powerful, without the use of open source software (OSS). Developers design open source software with source code that is accessible for anyone to use, modify, and learn from, and they release the code with specific licensing rights.

Black Duck Security Advisories provide actionable advice and details about open source vulnerabilities to help you improve your remediation activities. A vulnerability is a software bug that hackers can exploit to attack an application. Ideally, software is written so as to proactively thwart the efforts of bad actors, but that is often not the case.

Listed as #1 on the OWASP Top 10 list, broken access control is when an attacker can gain unauthorized access to restricted information or systems. Access control ensures that people can only gain access to things they’re supposed to have access to. When access control is broken, an attacker can obtain unauthorized access to information or systems that can put an organization at risk of a data breach or system compromise.
