The GitHub Security Lab’s CodeQL bounty program fuels GitHub Advanced Security with queries written by the open source community.

In this post, I’ll discuss how to apply OWASP Proactive Control C2: Leverage security frameworks and libraries.
Defining your security requirements is the most important proactive control you can implement for your project. Here’s how.
This lesser-known OWASP project aims to help developers prevent vulnerabilities from being introduced in the first place.
OSS-Fuzz is Google’s awesome fuzzing service for open source projects. GitHub Security Lab’s @kevinbackhouse describes enrolling a project.
The Exiv2 team tightened our security by enabling GitHub’s code scanning feature and adding custom queries tailored to the Exiv2 code base.
When you’re fixing a bug, especially a security vulnerability, you should add a regression test, fix the bug, and find & fix variants.
This blog post is the first in a series about hardening the security of the Exiv2 project. My goal is to share tips that will help you harden the security of your own project.
We put out a call to open source developers and security researchers to talk about the security vulnerability disclosure process. Here’s what we found.
polkit is a system service installed by default on many Linux distributions. It’s used by systemd, so any Linux distribution that uses systemd also uses polkit. As a member of GitHub Security Lab, my job is to help improve the security of open source software by finding and reporting vulnerabilities. A few weeks ago, I found a privilege escalation vulnerability in polkit.
