Open source software security vulnerabilities exist for over four years before detection

It can take an average of over four years for vulnerabilities in open source software to be spotted, an area in the security community that needs to be addressed, researchers say. 

According to GitHub’s annual State of the Octoverse report, published on Wednesday, reliance on open source projects, components, and libraries is more common than ever. 

Over the course of 2020, GitHub tallied over 56 million developers on the platform, with over 60 million new repositories being created — and over 1.9 billion contributions added — over the course of the year. 

“You would be hard-pressed to find a scenario where your data does not pass through at least one open source component,” GitHub says. “Many of the services and technology we all rely on, from banking to healthcare, also rely on open source software. The artifacts of open source code serve as critical infrastructure for much of the global

New Delhi: Security forces have launched a major security audit using hi-tech gadgets, including satellite imagery, to find tunnels along the entire Line of Control and International Border with Pakistan.

The move comes in the wake of the revelations that Pakistan-based Jaish-e-Mohammed terrorists killed in Nagrota encounters Friday morning had used a tunnel to infiltrate.

 

Sources said that the cross-border underground tunnel unearthed in Samba sector was 160 metres into the Indian side and estimated to be 40 metres on the Pakistani side of IB.

Pakistan’s new internet rules protect ‘integrity, security and defence’ of country

Pakistan is all set to roll out new internet rules that critics say will give the government wide powers of censorship after rejecting requests from social media companies for consultation.

Muslim-majority Pakistan already has media regulations that adhere to conservative social customs. Last month, the Pakistan Telecommunication Authority (PTA) blocked TikTok for failing to filter out “immoral and indecent” content.

The new rules were approved initially by Prime Minister Imran Khan’s cabinet in February.

They give the PTA “removal and blocking” powers of digital content that “harms, intimidates or excites disaffection” towards the government or poses a threat to the “integrity, security and defence of Pakistan”.

A service provider or social media company could face a fine up to 500 million rupees (Dh11.5 million) for non-compliance, which

Trump fired his top election security official, but the agency’s debunking website lives on for now

WASHINGTON — On Wednesday morning, national security officials were still trying to determine whether President Trump’s decision to oust his top election security official, Chris Krebs, would impact the ongoing work of his former agency, including a government Rumor Control website, where officials have been debunking popular conspiracy theories about the election in real time. 

As of Wednesday afternoon, the website is still up and running. CISA officials, including top cybersecurity advisor Matt Masterson, tweeted that they were still on the job. 

President Donald Trump took to Twitter on Tuesday evening to “terminate” Krebs, a senior official at the Department of Homeland Security in charge of election security. His apparent offense, according to White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany, was making “an inaccurate statement.”
