re: Many Commercial Software Projects Contain Older, Vulnerable Open-Source Code
Dave Wichers talks about this in his three-part series on Contrast Security's blog: http://www1.contrastsecurity.c...

Key Takeaways:
1. If you are going to use open-source frameworks and libraries, avoid downloading libraries with known vulnerabilities, and update them when new updates/patches for the libraries you are already using are.
2. The earlier in your software development life cycle security flaws are found and eliminated, the cheaper it is for your organization.
3. Contrast doesn't care where the code comes from, or whether you even have access to the source code at all. Contrast will point out exactly where in the code each vulnerability is introduced, regardless of its source or pedigree.
