The list of vulnerabilities and bugs

Around 76% of applications contain vulnerabilities according to a Veracode study. The origin of these vulnerabilities and errors would come mainly from open source libraries. On the language side, PHP is the most concerning.

News Recent developments in the United States show that networks, however secure, are vulnerable. the defects it would simply be the norm if we believe that the latest report from the US cybersecurity company has been. Veracode. In their annual report on the state of software security, it appears that 76% of Applications contain defects and, for 24% of them, these vulnerabilities are considered very serious. The firm investigated and discovered that it is in open source libraries where we found the most vulnerabilities and crazy. These seem to be less and less reliable, and yet their codes are massively exploited by application publishers.

Thus, for 70% of applications, errors and vulnerabilities result directly from their exploitation. open source libraries. On the other hand, among editors, the internally generated code is still quite reliable. So it’s really when digging into these libraries that developers need to be careful.

PHP is the one that suffers the most from errors

What’s reassuring is that Veracode found that 73% of the bugs and glitches found had been fixed since the last study. However, in half of the cases, it takes an average of six months to cover up the violations.

But what Veracode also points out is that the worst bugs and vulnerabilities are limited to the language PHP. Thus, 74.6% of PHP applications have gaps that allow the application of malicious scripts. Next, in order, are the languages, C ++, Java, .Net, JavaScript, and Python. Still according to Veracode, this trend is essentially due to the age of ever-evolving applications whose code history becomes difficult to interpret over time.
