Open source breaches up by 71 percent

Open source breaches have increased by 71 percent over the last five years, while 26 percent of companies have reported a confirmed or suspected web application breach in the past year alone according to a new report.

The study from open source governance specialist Sonatype also shows 41 percent of executives admit their company doesn’t follow an open source governance programme.

"Underpinning 80 to 90 percent of an enterprise application, open source components have played an instrumental role in driving innovation and accelerating time to market," says Derek Weeks, vice president and DevOps advocate at Sonatype. "But with as many as 50 percent of downloaded components containing a known vulnerability, it is critical that organisations implement proper software governance to ensure they're building quality -- and security -- into their applications from the beginning."
