Worth Reading: Stop Blaming Open Source

Despite the known threats, many organisations continue to point fingers at open source platforms for poor security practices. But do you really think these platforms are the ones that need to be blamed? Coming back to the Equifax example, soon after this, the company began to examine how the breach occurred, many unsubstantiated reports and theories surfaced in an attempt to pinpoint the vulnerability. One such theory included was the software (an open source framework) to be responsible for the breach. This gave rise to some of the most unwarranted open source shaming. —Nishtha Singh @ opensourceforu
