Developers sometimes maintain an internal copy of another software or fork development of an existing project. This practice can lead to software vulnerabilities when the embedded code is not kept up to date with upstream sources. The authors propose an automated solution to identify clones of packages without any prior knowledge of these relationships. They then correlate clones with vulnerability information to identify outstanding security problems. This approach motivates software maintainers to avoid using cloned packages and link against system wide libraries.
