Application security: 4 common causes of software vulnerabilities
How Do Vulnerabilities Get Into Software?
According to the Department of Homeland Security, 90% of security incidents result from exploits against defects in software. While it’s important to focus on external threats, it’s equally critical to ensure the management of internal vulnerabilities.
In this white paper, take an in-depth look at 4 common causes that lead to software vulnerabilities, which include:
- Insecure coding practices
- The evolving threat landscape
- Reusing vulnerable components & code
- Programming language idiosyncrasies
