GitHub Adds Automatic Vulnerability Scanning Feature


GitHub, a code repository hosting service owned by Microsoft, now offers developers the option to have their code repositories automatically scanned for vulnerabilities.

The new feature, which is accessible as a “default setup” option, is designed to make it easier for code developers to identify and fix vulnerabilities. It allows open-source developers and businesses to enable code scanning without the use of a.yaml file and will immediately give them insights into their code’s problems.
