How does the support for finding vulnerabilities in JavaScript libraries work?

There is a huge amount of JavaScript libraries out there, for use on the web. This greatly simplifies development, but it also means that you need to stay up-to-date on security fixes. "Using Components with Known Vulnerabilities" is now a part of the OWASP Top 10 (External link) list of security risks and insecure libraries can pose a huge risk to your Web applications. One of the goals for our web application scanner is to help you detect the use of JS-library versions with known vulnerabilities.

Our Web Application Scanner helps you detect vulnerable JavaScript components.

Our web application scanner has the capability to scan and find vulnerabilities in most JavaScript libraries. Here is a few examples of the most common ones:

  • Eember.js 
  • Bootstrap
  • AngularJS
  • jQuery
  • React 

To see all tests search in Vulnerability Tests inside Security Center.
