March 2016. An anonymous open source developer decides to remove his code (left-pad) from a public repository.
Shortly thereafter, several large organizations felt the impact of his actions. Facebook, AirBnB and others experienced errors impacting the functionality of their services. Packages using “left-pad” wouldn’t properly execute.
Today, we embrace both the open source community and the growth of open source projects, modules and packages but… Dependencies and recursive dependencies might become a risk or even a new attack vector which we didn’t foresee.
Could there be other cases of common and popular open source packages depending on open source modules that might not be there tomorrow or, even worse, could they be maliciously modified?

Join us for an insightful session that will reveal our research on this topic where you will learn:

• How packages you use could be maliciously modified impact on your app Discuss the risks introduced by hybrid application development
• How intertwined and complex dependencies have become
