There has been a steadily increasing trend in using third party components in application development. This is to achieve faster time to market and better functionality. However, these components come with insidious security vulnerabilities that are continuously discovered at a later date, much after the application is already in production. While we need to come up with a plan to remediate these newly discovered security flaws, it is known that components with known vulnerabilities make their way into an application. This is well preventable and so it must be. We will discuss a few don'ts and more dos in the practice of integrating third party components in your applications, as securely as possible.
