CVSS: The Vulnerability Dartboard

An Overview of CVSS Score

The Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS) is the industry standard for scoring the severity of a vulnerability. In this article, we will take a closer look at this score. 

What is CVSS Severity?

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 Past, Present, and Future of the CVSS

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. 

Measuring the Severity of Vulnerabilities: Changes in CVSS 3.1

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).
