82% of public sector software apps have security flaws

Veracode analyzed data from 20 million scans across half a million applications, which revealed that the public sector has the highest proportion of security flaws in its applications, and fix rates are low too.

Also, 60% of flaws in third-party libraries in the public sector remain unfixed after two years.

With only a 22 percent fix rate overall, the public sector is challenged to keep software supply chain attacks from impacting critical state, local, and educational applications.
