Software security involves more than passwords, access control, and social engineering. Even if a company implements these security measures, there’s always the risk of a hacker finding vulnerabilities in programs built using legacy languages like C. For developers, it is essential to implement security with the language’s risk at hand. Legacy languages are no different and present a myriad of unique security risks that have to be effectively evaluated.
In this guide, we explore:
- Top 5 security risks using C language
- The cost of security failures
- Best practices when using legacy languages
