Dependency-Check Ant Task
Dependency-Check Ant Task can be used to check the project dependencies for published security vulnerabilities. The checks performed are a "best effort" and as such, there could be false positives as well as false negatives. However, vulnerabilities in 3rd party components is a well-known problem and is currently documented in the 2013 OWASP Top 10 as A9 - Using Components with Known Vulnerabilities.
Documentation and links to production binary releases can be found on the github pages.
