‘Trojan Source’ attack method can hide bugs into open-source code

Academic researchers have released details about a new attack method they call “Trojan Source” that allows injecting vulnerabilities into the source code of a software project in a way that human reviewers can’t detect.

Trojan Source relies on a simple trick that does not require modifying the compiler to create vulnerable binaries.

The method works with some of the most widely used programming languages today and adversaries could use it for supply-chain attacks.
