Test vulnerabilities of external dependencies with OWASP Dependency Check

In this story, I introduce a solution to test vulnerabilities of external dependencies of an application: OWASP Dependency Check.

According to Gartner, 80% of an application’s code is provided by dependencies. However, the vulnerabilities of these dependencies are rarely monitored.

OWASP’s Dependency Check tool can automatically list and check whether an application dependency has a vulnerability.
