Coverity to host webcast to help developers find and fix 'Heartbleed'

MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., April 25, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Coverity Inc., a Synopsys company (Nasdaq:SNPS), today announced it has updated the Coverity Development Testing Platform to enable developers to find and fix the OpenSSL 'Heartbleed' defect in software applications. Coverity will host a webcast on May 1, 2014 at 8.30 a.m. PDT that explains this platform hotfix, as well as highlights best practices for open source software quality.

What: Stop the Bleeding: Best Practices in Open Source Quality 
When: Thursday, May 1, 2014 at 8:30 a.m. PDT
Where: Webcast (register)

During the webcast, Coverity will discuss why specifically looking for the Open SSL n2s macro is an ineffective approach for protecting against defects like Heartbleed, and how the new Coverity platform hotfix will automatically detect this type of defect without introducing significant false positive (FP) noise or analysis delays.
