National Vulnerability Database

I’ve been following this for sometime… This is an important resource of information for keeping up on information relating the vulnerabilities of a variety of technological systems.

We have a pre-disposition to believe that Windows is the only real attack vector in our information infrastructure, but the reality is that, though it is a huge target, other systems sport vulnerabilities waiting to be exploited.

To that end you’ll see on the right hand side of the page, a new list of the recently found exploits as published by the DHS and NIST on systems vulnerabilities.

This is a difficult position, because I hate fear mongering, and hate being the one to shout "the sky is falling!" But if you saw the piece from Wired Science on PBS October 3rd, you’ll see there is some merit to being concerned. "Forewarned is forearmed" as the saying goes.
