  • Theoretical physicist Stephen Hawking was spot on when he said, “Whether you want to uncover the secrets of the universe, or you just want to pursue a career in the 21st century, basic computer programming is an essential skill to learn.” It’s no secret that programming is a thriving career path – especially with the speed of software development picking up, not slowing down. But one critical READ MORE

  • Sensitive data exposure is currently at number 3 in the OWASP Top 10 list of the most critical application security risks. In this blog post, we will describe common scenarios of incorrect sensitive data handling and suggest ways to protect sensitive data. We will illustrate our suggestions with code samples in C# that can be used in ASP.NET Core applications. What is sensitive data? OWASP READ MORE

  • It’s no secret that the rapid speed of modern software development means an increased likelihood of risky flaws and vulnerabilities in your code. Developers are working fast to hit tight deadlines and create innovative applications, but without the right security solutions integrated into your processes, it’s easy to hit security roadblocks or let flaws slip through the cracks. We recently dug READ MORE

  • In this article, we explain how dangerous an unrestricted view name manipulation in Spring Framework could be. Before doing so, lets look at the simplest Spring application that uses Thymeleaf as a templating engine: Structure: HelloController.java: @Controller public class HelloController { @GetMapping("/") public String index(Model model) { model.addAttribute("message READ MORE

  • Developer security training is more critical than ever, but data shows us that the industry isn’t taking it quite as seriously as it should. A recent ESG survey report, Modern Application Development Security, highlights the glaring gaps in effective developer security training. In the report, we learned that only 20 percent of surveyed organizations offer security training to new developers who READ MORE

  • You work hard to produce quality applications on tight deadlines, and like every other development team out there, that often means relying on open source code to keep projects on track. Having access to plug-and-go code is invaluable when you’re racing the clock, but the accessibility of open source libraries comes with a caveat: increased risk. In our recent report, State of Software Security: READ MORE

  • As organizations continue to adopt DevSecOps, a methodology that shifts security measures to the beginning of the software development lifecycle (SDLC), roles and processes are evolving. Developers are expected to take on increased security measures – such as application security (AppSec) scans, flaw remediation, and secure coding – and security professionals are expected to take on more of a READ MORE

  • We recently partnered with Enterprise Strategy Group (ESG) to survey software development and security professionals about modern application development and how applications are tested for security. The soon-to-be-announced survey found that 53% of organizations provide security training for developers less than once a year, which is woefully inadequate for the rapid pace of change in software READ MORE

  • If there’s one thing you need to value as you move through your career as a modern software developer, it’s the importance of security. With application layers increasing and the shift left movement bringing security into the picture earlier on the development process, security should be top of mind for every developer working to write and compile successful code. But many developers leave school READ MORE
