Monitoring Package Vulnerabilities

Efficient software developers don’t reinvent the wheel and know the right packages to use when monitoring vulnerabilities in both frontend and backend packages.
🔐 Using a bunch of third-party libraries as the supporting building blocks to build modern, high-quality applications became a common practice since they save time and money in full-stack projects.

But this comes with an unexpected side effect: out-of-date packages that must be updated and re-tested, and even worse, vulnerabilities can be introduced!

One of the big challenges for developers to address is when a project has been delivered to a client and gone into maintenance mode. With no developer actively working on the project, if a vulnerability is discovered in a library referenced in the project, no one will be aware of it, and it will cause pain.

However, if you monitor the packages you have installed, and a vulnerability is reported, then as developers, we have a duty of care to inform our clients.

Do you monitor your application for vulnerabilities?
