What Can We Learn From the Hacker Community on Prioritizing Vulnerabilities?

Open Source Vulnerabilities Through the Eyes of Hackers

Software development and security teams are bombarded with security alerts. Since fixing all vulnerabilities is unrealistic, these teams must find a method to focus on the ones that matter most. WhiteSource and CYR3CON joined forces to assess the problem from a hacker’s perspective to uncover insights about prioritizing vulnerabilities.
