Even though its importance has been revealed, its current practice in the software industry is still scarce, particularly in Malaysia.Thus, an exploratory study is conducted among software practitioners in Malaysia to study their experiences and practices in the real-world projects.This paper discusses the findings from the study, which involved 93 software practitioners.Structured questionnaire is utilized for data collection purpose whilst statistical methods such as frequency, mean, and cross tabulation are used for data analysis.Outcomes from this study reveal that software practitioners are becoming increasingly aware on the importance of secure software practices, however, they lack of appropriate implementation, which could affect the quality of produced software.
