About security vulnerabilities in dependencies

Uma vulnerabilidade é um problema no código de um projeto que poderia ser explorada para corromper a confidencialidade, a integridade ou a disponibilidade do projeto ou de outros projetos que usam o código. Depending on the severity level and the way your project uses the dependency, vulnerabilities can cause a range of problems for your project or the people who use it. You can track and resolve vulnerabilities for certain types of dependencies in your GitHub repository.

If GitHub detects a vulnerability from the Banco de Dados Consultivo GitHub or WhiteSource in one of the dependencies in your repository's dependency graph, we'll send you an alert. For more information about the Banco de Dados Consultivo GitHub, see "Browsing security vulnerabilities in the Banco de Dados Consultivo GitHub."

GitHub Dependabot alerts and security updates for vulnerable dependencies

When a new vulnerability is added to the GitHub Advisory Database, we identify public repositories (and private repositories that have opted in to vulnerability detection) that use the affected version of the dependency, send a GitHub Dependabot alert to repository maintainers, and generate a GitHub Dependabot security update.

Each Dependabot alert includes a severity level, a link to the affected file in your project, and a link to a pull request containing a security update that resolves the vulnerability. When available, the alert will include further details about the vulnerability.

You can see all of the alerts affecting a particular project on the repository's Security tab or in the repository's dependency graph. For more information, see "Viewing and updating vulnerable dependencies in your repository."

We send Dependabot alerts to people with admin permissions in the affected repositories by default. GitHub never publicly discloses identified vulnerabilities for any repository. You can also enable Dependabot alerts for additional people or teams working in organization-owned repositories. For more information, see "Managing alerts for vulnerable dependencies in your organization's repositories."

Atualizações de segurança do GitHub Dependabot update vulnerable dependencies to the minimum version that resolves the vulnerability. Security updates are automatically enabled in repositories that use the dependency graph and Alertas GitHub Dependabot, but you can choose to disable automatic pull requests and generate security updates manually instead. For more information, see "Configuring Atualizações de segurança do GitHub Dependabot."

GitHub detects and alerts on vulnerable dependencies in public repositories by default. To receive Alertas GitHub Dependabot for vulnerable dependencies in a private repository, an owner of or person with admin access to the repository must enable the dependency graph and Alertas GitHub Dependabot in the repository. For more information, see "Managing data use settings for your private repository."

For a list of the supported languages that GitHub can detect vulnerabilities and dependencies for, see "Listing the packages that a repository depends on."

Note: GitHub's security features do not claim to catch all vulnerabilities. Though we are always trying to update our vulnerability database and alert you with our most up-to-date information, we will not be able to catch everything or alert you to known vulnerabilities within a guaranteed time frame. These features are not substitutes for human review of each dependency for potential vulnerabilities or any other issues, and we recommend consulting with a security service or conducting a thorough vulnerability review when necessary.

Configuring notifications for Alertas GitHub Dependabot

By default, you will receive Alertas GitHub Dependabot by email, grouped by the specific vulnerability. You can also choose to receive Alertas GitHub Dependabot in a weekly email summarizing alerts for up to 10 of your repositories, in your web notifications, or in the GitHub user interface. For more information, see Configuring notifications ."

Email notifications for security alerts that affect one or more repositories include the X-GitHub-Severity header field. You can use the value of the X-GitHub-Severity header field to filter email notifications for security alerts. For more information, see "Configuring notifications."
