This year has seen a stunning 650% rise in attacks on supply chain, and malware spreads though that compromised supply chain across the globe, probably faster than the Covid-19. There are red, blue, purple and other color-coded teams with decorated professionals working tirelessly to detect and defend it. We will not discuss about them, today.

This story is about the developers. Have you ever thought, how a simple piece of benign codes written by a good guy unintentionally becomes a destruction machinery? How would a developer protect his/her codes from becoming a super-spreader of malware? Is maintaining some simple hygiene enough? This talk evangelizes for the shift security left philosophy for preventing malware attacks though software supply chain.
