Ruby on Rails Static Analysis Security Tool

One Year Anniversary

One year ago, Brakeman 0.0.1 was released as a gem. Then it was promptly yanked and replaced with Brakeman 0.0.2.

In celebration of this grand anniversary, there have been several new releases today.

The first is Brakeman 0.7.2, a minor release adding CVE numbers for the latest vulnerabilities and fixing how nested params/cookie accesses are handled (e.g., params[:user][:name] is now considered a direct use of a parameter).

Next up, Brakeman has its own Twitter feed @BrakemanScanner.

Lastly, there is this new website. Look forward to tutorials and more in-depth information about how to use Brakeman effectively.
