Data Mining a Mountain of Zero Day Vulnerabilities

Every day, software developers around the world, from Bangalore to Silicon Valley, churn out millions of lines of insecure code. This presentation evaluates an anonymized vulnerability data set derived from static binary analysis on thousands of applications belonging to large enterprises, commercial software vendors, open source projects, and software outsourcers.

By mining this data we can answer some interesting questions. What types of mistakes do developers make most often? Are we making any progress at eradicating XSS and SQL injection? How long does it really take to remediate software vulnerabilities? How secure are third party software components?

The discussion will answer these questions and many others, giving you a deep dive into metrics not found anywhere else.
