Google just launched OSV scanner, a new tool. It’s free! open sourceIt claims that this tool gives developers easy access and control over vulnerability information relevant for their project.
Google launched OSV.dev in 2021. It is a distributed open-source vulnerability database that allows open source ecosystems to publish and consume information together in a machine-readable format.
Google claims that OSV-Scanner is now an officially supported front-end for this OSV database. It links project dependencies to the vulnerabilities that affect them.
What is this offer?
OSV-Scanner seems to have integrated OpenSSF scorecard vulnerability scan, which means that it will be able extend the analysis beyond the project’s vulnerabilities to include all dependencies.
Software projects often have many third-party dependencies that are derived from external software libraries. With too many versions to keep track manually, automation is useful to ensure security according Google.
Each vulnerability advisory is also sourced from an “open, trusted source”, such the RustSec advisory data base.
Google states that anyone can suggest improvements in Guidelines reporting. This results is a higher-quality data base.
Google is not surprising to be looking to invest in Open Source Security as open source security vulnerabilities are still key. End point Hackers are able to hack into systems.
In fact, the report was actually compiled by Snyk, a cybersecurity firm, and associated with LinuxThe foundation found that 41 percent of companies were in the top five. They are not confident about the security of their open source code.
This lack trust hampers the adoption and use of open source software by many companies. actually decreased 5%From 95% in 2021 up to 90% this year.
