The Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS) offers a way to capture the major features of a vulnerability and produce a numerical score showcasing its severity. The numerical score can then be translated into a qualitative representation such as low, medium, high and critical to assist companies to effectively assess and prioritize their vulnerability management processes.
The Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS) offers a way for companies to assess the fundamental features of a vulnerability and produce a numerical score showcasing its severity. The CVSS has proven to be beneficial to assess vulnerabilities and to standardize security policies. But, it has also shown some inadequacies in addressing the needs of users outside of traditional IT environments.
Common Vulnerability Scoring System (SVSS) version 3.0 framework was the last one that was published by the organization responsible for creating it. It was created by the Forum of Incident Response and Security Teams (FIRST).
Threat actors make use of vulnerabilities for their attacks. By exploiting vulnerabilities, attackers can gain access to devices, networks and systems. Vulnerabilities enable attackers to steal corporate information and sell sensitive information. They can also eavesdrop to confidential communication.
Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS) allows companies to make use of a common language when dealing with vulnerability threats. Since it was created in 2003, CVSS has been widely implemented by many companies.
What is...Patch Tuesday
Sacramento, CA - Beyond Security, a global leader in automated penetration testing and vulnerability scanning, today announced their technology partnership with Vicarius, an Israel-based vulnerability prioritization, and remediation company. This partnership will extend the detection and response capabilities of beSECURE by leveraging Vicarius’ TOPIA 0-day analysis engine, usage-based threat prioritization, and patchless protection for an all-in-one threat mitigation solution.
Vulnerability is a weakness in software, hardware, procedures or personnel. But, not all vulnerabilities are the same. Some vulnerability has system administrators scrambling to deploy a patch, while some are not worth fixing.
The way we identify, prioritize, and mitigate software vulnerabilities was built in reverse order. Why did it happen? How can we make things different?
The Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS) offers software developers, security and IT experts with a standardized process for evaluating vulnerabilities. CVSS can be used to evaluate the threat level of each vulnerability and then prioritize mitigation accordingly. This article explains the way CVSS works, which includes a review of its components and describes the importance of using a standardized process for evaluating vulnerabilities.
As the amount of cyber crime and cyber damage grows over time, the need for protecting assets and organizations is paramount.
As the threat landscape changes, the ability to address the most common types of security vulnerabilities is vital for robust protection. As information becomes the most essential asset for an organization, cybersecurity gains much more importance. To successfully conduct your business and preserve the hard-earned reputation of your company, you need to protect your data from malicious attacks, data breaches and hackers.
As if times haven’t been hard enough, businesses are dealing with new security threats while employees work from home and some have major issues with one of the most popular video conferencing platforms, Zoom.
