Questions about the Long term security of POCO::Net?

Postby POCOnoob » 08 Jan 2017, 22:26

I'm looking at writing a website in C++ using the POCO::Net stuff (as a learning experience, aka fun).

One of the questions I have though is how often are security vulnerabilities found, how does the information get disseminated to people, and what process is used for patching?

So far no significant security issues have been found. There is one issue that has its own CVE, and there will be CVEs for any future security issues that may be found. Apart from that, such issues would be announced via our usual channels (blog, Twitter).

Depending on the severity of the issue, it will either be fixed in the next regular release, or via an intermediate patch release.
