Monthly Research Round-up: 7 must-read cyber security reports in October

What are the big threats and cyber security trends this month?

By Alexander Sword

October is European Cyber Security Month, and the industry didn’t disappoint, producing a huge amount of research describing the biggest threats and trends out there.

CBR rounds up some of the main reports.


1. Veracode: Security risks in software are endemic

The State of Software Security Report found that 97 percent of Java applications contained at least one component with a known software vulnerability.

javascriptApparently, the top quartile of companies fix nearly 70 percent more vulnerabilities than the average company. Veracode said that best practices, such as remediation coaching and eLearning could improve fix rates by up to 6 times.

Additionally, over half of web applications were affected by misconfigured secure communications or other security defences.

The report was drawn from analysis of billions of lines of code, based on 300,000 assessments over the last 18 months.
