9 Sources For Tracking New Vulnerabilities

Keeping up with the latest vulnerabilities -- especially in the context of the latest threats -- can be a real challenge.

Advice: Pick Your Feeds Wisely

When time-sensitive actions are being made based on the data coming in through the feed, it's paramount that the feed be consumable and provide regular, current updates.

'Constant curation means constant investment,' said Ash Wilson, strategic engineering specialist at CloudPassage. 'And to continue getting the most value out of the feed, the owners of the feed can't stop contributing. Accuracy and timeliness are two very important metrics to consider when looking for a threat feed provider of any kind.'

It's important to understand the source -- and backing for your source -- to avoid getting left without a solid vulnerability database. A good example is the case where many had to say goodbye to their vulnerability feed when minority-player Open Source Vulnerability Database (OSVDB) was shut down.


'Not having OSVDB any longer, while sad for those that relied on it, may actually reduce the complexity in making sure there is integration across all products, MSSPs, services, and SIEMs,' says Fred Wilmot, chief technology officer at PacketSled

Security Tracker Closes it's doors in 2018
Great read thank you for it. On the 8th slide you have Security Tracker. I used this source a great deal. They have ceased on Tracking and Notifying on vulnerabilities as of the end of 2018. Just an FYI. This was their statement on the matter.  

 

"SecurityTracker - Dec 31 2018

https://www.securitytracker.com

 In November 2018, SecurityTracker discontinued delivery of our free SecurityTracker alerts. We have enjoyed providing the community with nearly 18 years of continued service.

 SecurityTracker public archives are available on our web site from April 2001 - November 2018."
