New vulnerabilities in open source packages were down 20% compared to last year suggesting security of open source packages and containers are heading in a positive direction, according to Snyk.

Well known vulnerabilities, such as cross-site scripting, continue to be reported but aren’t impacting as many projects as they have in previous years. This is further encouraged as organizations start to drive a culture shift that embodies open source and container security as a core responsibility shared and integrated across development, security and operations teams.

This year the report took an even deeper look at vulnerability and ecosystem-level trends that impact the overall security posture of organizations relying on open source libraries.

Across the six popular ecosystems the report examined, there were fewer new vulnerabilities reported in 2019 than in 2018 – a promising finding – but there are still significant improvements to strive for with slightly less than two thirds of vulnerabilities still taking more than 20 days to remediate.
