Nice!!! i had a question for Vulnerabilities, Is there a plan to add this scope in Sonarlint?

Hello Crispin.
Thank you for your question.
We have some security vulnerabilities detection in SonarLint already.
Like rules below:

  • Encryption algorithms should be used with secure mode and padding scheme
  • LDAP deserialization should be disabled
  • LDAP connections should be authenticated

and many others from this list.

But also we have number of rules that can be analysed only on SonarQube/SonarCloud. And speaking about them - yes, we have a plan to support browsing of this issues in SonarLint. It’s in the road map for this year.
