This book will help both development and application security architects and practitioners address the risk of vulnerable open source libraries
 and discuss why such vulnerable dependencies are the most likely to be exploited by attackers. It will also guide you through best practices and tools for:

Finding vulnerabilities across your open source packages 
Quickly remediate new vulnerabilities and make fixing easy
