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.

NIST National Vulnerability Database (NVD)

NVD is the US government repository of standards-based vulnerability management data. This data enables automation of vulnerability management, security measurement, and compliance. NVD is based on and synchronized with the CVE List (see next slide).

As of the creation of this slideshow, the NVD had reported: 
79,510 CVE vulnerabilities 
376 Checklists 
249 US-CERT alerts 
4,458 US-CERT vuln notes 
10,286 OVAL queries 
115,220 CPE Names


'NVD provides organizations the ability to validate and understand the checklist and prescriptive guidance, thanks to the Center of Internet Security,' says Fred Wilmot, chief technology officer at PacketSled. 'NVD is delivered in a structured language for all to consume in SCAP or CVSS. The Main pro for NVD (and CVE, for that matter) is the commonality and structure of the format.  It's not just about reporting and keeping current in vulnerability data like 0-days, but that they can also feed a risk framework and help validate applicability or relevance of attacks.'


'NIST's NVD ties vulnerabilities to specific versions of applications, but figuring out what's actually bundled inside a software package is a whole other process,' adds Ash Wilson, strategic engineering specialist at CloudPassage.

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."
