Software Supply Chain Attacks More Than Tripled in 2021
This study by Argon, an Aqua company, found that software supply chain threats increased in number and sophistication in 2021 compared to 2020, with more vulnerabilities and attacks discovered every month.
Attackers focused on open source vulnerabilities and poisoning, code issues, software supply chain process or exploiting supplier trust, to distribute malware or backdoors to non-suspecting application users.
The Argon experts identified three primary areas of risk that companies should understand and address to improve software supply chain security:
- Vulnerable Packages Usage
- Compromised Pipeline Tools
- Code/Artifact Integrity
