GitHub introduced a new feature to fix vulnerabilities in code

With the help of AI, GitHub announced the launch of automatic code bug fixing in public beta mode for all GitHub Advanced Security users. Using GitHub Copilot and CodeQL, this feature covers more than 90% of alert types in JavaScript, TypeScript, Java, and Python, offering code recommendations that can address more than two-thirds of detected vulnerabilities with minimal or no changes.

GitHub's goal in application security is to create an environment where detection means fixing. GitHub Advanced Security's priority is to speed up the process of resolving vulnerabilities, and teams are already doing so 7 times faster than with traditional security tools.

Automatically fixing bugs in code is the next big step forward in helping developers significantly reduce the time and effort spent on eliminating vulnerabilities.
