Vulnerability scanner for project's dependencies

OSV-Scanner is a vulnerability scanner that examines your project's list of dependencies and reports any vulnerabilities that affect the versions you're using.

As of December 2023, it supports lockfiles from C, C++, Dart, Elixir, Go, Java, JavaScript, PHP, Python, R, Ruby, and Rust. It also supports custom lockfiles: simply write some glue code to convert your lockfile into an intermediary JSON file with a particular format, and OSV-Scanner will comprehend the latter.

After confirming that a reported vulnerability is a false positive or discovering mitigations other than upgrading the package, OSV-Scanner provides the option to suppress it so that future runs will not display it.
