Open source software (OSS) plays an important role for business innovation by adapting cutting edge technologies, in addition to faster implementation of new services than competitors. However, one vulnerability in a popular OSS project can have a significant impact for a prolonged period. Particularly, the broad reuse of OSS and their modification of code amplifies vulnerability propagation and untraceability due to the change of their name after being forked as a new project or becoming a sub-component of another project after being modified.
