OWASP SafeNuGet is an MsBuild task to warn about insecure NuGet libraries:

Use of libraries with known vulnerabilities is a big problem. So big in fact it has now made it to the OWASP Top 10 2013. It's under A9 Using Known Vulnerable Components.


  1. Install the NuGet package
  2. Build


You can configure OWASP SafeNuGet by editing the packages/SafeNuGet.1.0.9/build/SafeNuGet.targets (replace the version number with the one you have installed).


  • CacheTimeInMinutes - how long the list of vulnerabilities should be kept before being refreshed from github
  • DontBreakBuild - (from 1.0.9) - If set to true, will not break build even though vulnerable package is found
