Rediscovering argument injection when using VCS tools - git and mercurial

One of the main goals for this research was to explore how it is possible to execute arbitrary commands even when using a safe API that prevents command injection. The focus will be on Version Control System (VCS) tools like git and hg (mercurial), that, among some of their options, allow the execution of arbitrary commands (under some circumstances). The targets for this research are web applications and library projects (written in any programming language) that call these commands using a safe API.

SecDevOps & LimaCharlie: Automating and auditing of Github access.

LimaCharlie's Security Infrastructure as a Service (SIaaS) approach makes it ideal for securing your CI/CD pipeline and building security solutions that make sense for you. In this video LimaCharlie founder and CEO, Maxime Lamothe-Brassard, walks through various ways to visibility and add layers of protection to your development process.

Building a secure CI/CD pipeline with GitHub Actions

GitHub Actions has made it easier than ever to build a secure continuous integration and continuous delivery (CI/CD) pipeline for your GitHub projects. By integrating your CI/CD pipeline and GitHub repository, GitHub Actions allows you to automate your build, test, and deployment pipeline. You can create workflows that build and test every pull request to your repository or deploy merged pull requests to production.


3 New GitHub Features to Reinforce Your Code, Repo, and Dependency Security

Developers love GitHub. It’s the biggest and most powerful collaboration platform that programmers, developers, and companies use to develop and maintain their software. It’s the biggest source code host with more than 200 million repositories. And it keeps growing. In 2021, more than 73 million developers used GitHub. It gained over 16 million new users in 2021 alone, and GitHub estimates that user numbers will increase to 100 million developers in the next five years.


GitHub Supply Chain Attacks Highlight the Urgency of Zero Trust SaaS Data Security

In early April, the tech industry witnessed a major GitHub security incident targeting GitHub organizations using Heroku and Travis CI. GitHub was made aware of this threat via an attack leveraging AWS API keys to GitHub’s own npm production infrastructure. As upstream security risks within SaaS platforms become more common, organizations that leverage these platforms are relying on tools like Nightfall to protect themselves.

FROGBOT : Securing your git repository!

Frogbot scans every pull request created for security vulnerabilities with JFrog Xray. With Frogbot installed, you can make sure that new pull requests don’t add new security vulnerabilities to your code base alongside them. If they do, the creator of the pull request has the opportunity to change the code before it is merged. Frogbot reports its findings directly in the git UI. It simply adds a comment with its findings. You can think of Frogbot as your new team member, keeping your code safe.

Reduce risks of data breaches throughout your development lifecycle with the new Bearer GitHub Action

Bearer is a Static Application Security Testing (SAST) tool that enables security and engineering teams to identify and mitigate data security risks throughout the software development lifecycle. It integrates with Source Code Management (SCM) software (see Git repository integrations for more details) to scan your code repositories, discover and classify data flows, and detect gaps with your data security policy.
