Introducing Bootstrap NES at HeroDevs

In today's fast-paced digital world, managing outdated open-source software while keeping up with essential security updates is a major challenge for many organizations. That’s why HeroDevs is excited to introduce Never-Ending Support (NES) for Bootstrap – a solution specifically designed to address these critical issues for companies relying on the end-of-life open-source frontend toolkit Bootstrap.

Bootstrap NES offers a secure drop-in replacement, extending the life of unsupported Bootstrap versions without the need for immediate, disruptive upgrades. Developed in collaboration with Bootstrap's original creators, this product ensures your applications remain secure, compliant, and compatible.

Bootstrap Security and Stability

Bootstrap likely acts as a critical piece of your software stack in providing a frontend toolkit for your websites.  Over the years of its development, Bootstrap, like almost all software, had vulnerabilities* found, reported, and fixed by its maintainers.  With Bootstrap 3 and 4 reaching their end of life from the original authors, switching to HeroDevs allows you to easily ensure that you continue to receive security patches and stay up to date.

*Previous security issues found and fixed included CVE-2019-10842 allowing for arbitrary code execution via cookie manipulation in some versions of Bootstrap 2 and 3.  There were also a number of XSS(Cross-site scripting) risks across Bootstrap components that were addressed in Bootstrap 3 and 4. These included CVE-2019-8331, CVE-2018-20677, CVE-2018-20676, CVE-2018-14042, CVE-2018-14041, CVE-2018-14040, and CVE-2016-10735.
