Security Database Alerts quotation are mostly based on the publicly known vulnerabilities identified on the CVE List. CVE names (also called "CVE numbers," "CVE-IDs," and "CVEs") are unique, common identifiers for publicly known information security vulnerabilities. CVE names have "entry" or "candidate" status. Entry status indicates that the CVE name has been accepted to the CVE List while candidate status (also called "candidates," "candidate numbers," or "CANs") indicates that the name is under review for inclusion in the list.

"CVE-compatible" means that a tool, Web site, database, or other security product or service uses CVE names in a manner that allows it to be cross-referenced with other products that employ CVE names. CVE-compatible means:

  • CVE SEARCHABLE - A user can search using a CVE name to find related information.
  • CVE OUTPUT - Information is presented that includes the related CVE name(s).
  • MAPPING - The repository owner has provided a mapping relative to a specific version of CVE, and has made a good faith effort to ensure accuracy of that mapping.
  • DOCUMENTATION - The organization’s standard documentation includes a description of CVE, CVE compatibility, and the details of how its customers can use the CVE-related functionality of its product or service.

Also, thanks to all our fans/members/followers and visitors who give us the strength to work on Security-Database.
