A new report out from security testing firm Veracode suggests that reused and third party code is a big source of application insecurity.
Veracode Inc. released its second State of Software Security Report on Wednesday. The report, which was based on Veracode's analysis of 2,922 applications, found that fully 60 percent those submitted to Veracode for security verification failed on their first submission - up from 58% in the first State of Software Security Report. As in that report: third party application code and reused code were a major source of application insecurity, Veracode found.


Very interresting read, I hope you'll enjoy it just as much as I did.

With Regards,
