We're dealing with PHP code for most of ToolsLib services, which means that despite the efforts in writing a secure code we still have to regularly mitigate regular CVE found in PHP components. While we have been very reactive to apply fixes, it's better if we can take pro-active measures.
Snuffleupagus has proved to be a very valuable tool so far. Its integration is a major improvement for the security of all the services that we provide, and we deeply care to keep our data safe, especially the one of our users who trust us millions times each month.
