A new report shows that stale open-source code is rampant in commercial software, and organizations in all industries are struggling to manage open source risk. "In 2020 the percentage of codebases containing high-risk vulnerabilities jumped from 49 to 60 percent. What was more disturbing is that several of the top 10 open source vulnerabilities found in 2019 codebases reappeared in the 2020 audits, all with significant percentage increases."
