Software hosting service provider GitHub has released a new experimental feature that aims to rid the code of some of the more common security vulnerabilities, as early in production, as possible. 

The new automatic scanner is powered by machine learning (ML), which will scan the incoming code, written in TypeScript and JavaScript, for four common vulnerabilities: cross-site scripting (XSS), path injection, NoSQL injection, and SQL Injection, reducing the chances for malware abuse.
