ActiveState Platform: How to view vulnerabilities

Learn how to use the ActiveState Platform to identify vulnerabilities in your language environments.

If your account has the vulnerabilities feature turned on, the ActiveState Platform will show critical vulnerabilities and exposures for each of your projects. For more details on these vulnerabilities, you can click the report button and see exactly which packages have what kinds of vulnerabilities and you can click on the link to get even more details about each of these vulnerabilities.

Don’t have a paid account? You can still request access to this feature and give it a try.

At ActiveState, we use the Platform to build not only our popular open source language distributions, but also custom runtimes for our enterprise clients (i.e. builds containing just the language and packages their project requires). Try out the Platform yourself or get a demo and understand how it can support your enterprise’s open source needs.


New to the ActiveState Platform? Here’s how to get started, once you’ve created your free account.

Use our Platform to build a custom runtime for your next project, including just the language and packages your project needs.

      • Choose a language (Python, Perl or Tcl right now)
      • Select your operating system (Linux or Windows, plus Mac for Python)
      • Add the packages your project requires

ActiveState regularly pulls packages from each language’s standard open source repository (CPAN, PyPI, etc) to ensure that your open source language and components are up to date, can be compiled from source, and are then verified to work together in a distribution that is packaged for most major operating systems. Go ahead and try our beta today! We are hanging out at our Community Forum to provide support as you explore.
