    Open source code is vital to software development at most organizations, but that doesn't mean that enterprises have figured out how to use open source without inadvertently introducing vulnerabilities into their code.

    A new study by the Synopsys Black Duck Audit Services team found that open-source software vulnerabilities have decreased, but many organizations seem to have trouble keeping track of the patched status of their open source components. Synopsis anonymized data from more than 1,200 codebases in enterprises in 17 different industries found that more than 96% of the codebases contain open source software or libraries.
