Following the news about Lenovo security flaw that could enable attackers to circumvent Windows’ basic security protocols, John Smith, principal solution architect at Veracode commented below.

 John Smith, Principal Solution Architect at Veracode:

John Smith “In today’s digital age, customers simply should not accept vulnerabilities as the fault of third-party providers, and should hold organisations to account concerning data protection regardless of where the vulnerability is discovered.

This latest Lenovo security flaw raises fresh questions regarding the safety of relying on third-party code to protect data and only underlines the importance of rigorous application testing at every stage of product development.”
