Websec offers pro bono security audits to open source web projects
Websec takes pleasure in announcing the start of their new pro bono web security campaign for open source projects. This campaign was designed with the objective of supporting open source projects that don’t have the resources to perform a full web security audit.
Open source projects are a main target for malicious hackers; the availability of the code facilitates the analysis of vulnerabilities, making it easier to breach organizations which depend on the software.
Websec supports the open source philosophy and understands that a large percentage of web applications these days depend on open source software. Therefore, Websec is committed to help this initiative that benefits millions of people.
Even though this campaign has just begun, this is not the first time that Websec has contributed to open source projects. Some of them include:
Projects that are accepted will be given a free web security audit, with the objective of discovering and correcting all found vulnerabilities in the project.
To submit your open source project, please read the ‘Guidelines and Procedures’ and fill out the form at http://websec.ca/opensource-web-security-campaign
