Mike Shema –

  1. Open source software security vulnerabilities exist for over four years before detection – which is the other headline you could give to GitHub’s State of the Octoverse.
  2. The State of the Octoverse – supplies a perspective on open source and security as seen by GitHub and shared with all of us.
  3. 8% of all Google Play apps vulnerable to old security bug – that demonstrates once again the software supply chain challenge of applying updates that software vendors supply.
  4. Project Zero: An iOS zero-click radio proximity exploit odyssey – is an epic read about the saga of radio, protocols, buffers, and surprising swarms of susceptible software that didn’t see it coming.
  5. Antipatterns That Hurt DevOps Implementations – might sound familiar and, fortunately, also sound like they can be turned into constructive collaboration.
  6. Cross-site leaks wiki – describes a vuln that’s truly cross-site and truly sneaky. And, if you’d like to dive deeper into configuring effective site policies to protect your web app, check “Reining in the Web’s Inconsistencies with Site Policy” at https://publications.cispa.saarland/3214/7/calzavara2021reining.pdf
  7. OWASP Web Security Testing Guide – v4.2 – this version must be the answer to life, the universe, and everything you wanted to know about web security testing!
