Security Polling

Check Spelling performs Security Polling to verify that the running version isn't known insecure.


The formal security/policy is in the repository.



CodeQL is not used by this repository because it doesn't support Shell/Perl.

CodeQL supports [ 'cpp', 'csharp', 'go', 'java', 'javascript', 'python' ]
