White House hosts open-source software security summit in light of expansive Log4j flaw
Tech giants and federal agencies meet at the White House to discuss open-source software security, a response to the widespread Log4j vulnerability that’s worrying industry and cyber leaders.
Among the attendees are companies like Apple, Facebook and Google, as well as the Apache Software Foundation, which builds Log4j, a ubiquitous open-source logging framework for websites.
“Building on the Log4j incident, the objective of this meeting is to facilitate an important discussion to improve the security of open source software — and to brainstorm how new collaboration could rapidly drive improvements,” a senior administration official said in advance of the meeting.
