Developer in a digital crosshair
Recent years show huge increase in the number of attacks on third party libraries and tools used in software development.
Typosquatting, dependency confusion, malicious changes in popular dependencies (UAParser.js, coa, node-ipc...), issues in popular dev tools (Codecov, Homebrew, npm...) or incidents (PHP, GitHub...). During my talk I will show a lot of interesting, recent examples of such attacks, causes and effects and discuss how to stay secure when developing software.
