National Vulnerability Database CVSS Scoring This page shows the components of the CVSS score for example and allows you to refine the CVSS base score. Please read the CVSS standards guide to fully understand how to score CVSS vulnerabilities and to interpret CVSS scores. The scores are computed in sequence such that the Base Score is used to calculate the Temporal Score and the Temporal Score is used to calculate the Environmental Score. Alert: Tenable Network Security Plugin Feed Information As information about new vulnerabilities are discovered and released into the general public domain, Tenable's research staff designs programs to enable Nessus to detect them. These programs are named 'plugins' and are written in the Nessus Attack Scripting Language (NASL). The plugins contain vulnerability information, a generic set of remediation actions and the algorithm to test for the presence of the security issue. Typically, Tenable produces plugins for vulnerabilities within 24 hours of its public release.
NIST Launches Vulnerability Tracking Site The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) has launched a new site designed to ease the process of keeping up with the latest vulnerability information. The National Vulnerability Database (NVD) was developed by NIST's Computer Security Division, and is sponsored in part by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security's National Cyber Security Division. According to NIST, it currently contains information on almost 12,000 vulnerabilities. HowTo: Find switchport of a MAC Address on Cisco Catalyst Switch If you have a big network with multiple Access Switches connecting to the core switches or routers then tracing a device like a PC or a laptop for troubleshooting or security purposes is one of those tasks that you often end up doing. This is not a difficult task but can certainly be time consuming. Lets start with an IP address on hand. If you have an IP address on hand quickly ping and check if the device is pingable. If yes, then simply logon to one of your core switches or routers and do a simple sh ip arp
Vulnerability Database One of the first step in protecting your company’s software applications against known security vulernabilities is to scan your code base, creating an inventory of the open source components you have in use. Next, you must continually compare this code bill of materials (BOM) to various vulnerability databases. The following databases collectively provide the most comprehensive vulnerability data available and are all leveraged through the Black Duck Hub's lightweight open source vulnerability scanning, tracking, and monitoring solution. The National Vulnerability Database (NVD) The National Vulnerability Database (NVD) is a public resource, managed by the US government, tracking security vulnerabilities reported for all types of software.
Internet Crime Schemes Auction Fraud Auction fraud involves fraud attributable to the misrepresentation of a product advertised for sale through an Internet auction site or the non-delivery of products purchased through an Internet auction site. Consumers are strongly cautioned against entering into Internet transactions with subjects exhibiting the following behavior:
NIST 800-53 Standardized Architecture on the AWS Cloud: Quick Start Reference Deployment June 2016 update: This Quick Start was expanded to support the following NIST-based assurance frameworks: NIST SP 800-53 (Revision 4), NIST SP 800-171, the OMB TIC Initiative – FedRAMP Overlay (pilot), and the DoD Cloud Computing SRG. This Quick Start deploys a standardized environment that helps support National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) 800-53 / Risk Management Framework (RMF) certifications, accreditations, and compliance processes. The Quick Start includes a deployment guide, which provides step-by-step instructions for deploying and configuring the environment. The deployment guide also includes links for viewing and launching AWS CloudFormation templates that automate the deployment. Quick Starts are automated reference deployments for key workloads on the AWS cloud.
CC Blog: Recommendations to vendors for communicating product security information Hi, this is Chad Dougherty of the Vulnerability Analysis team. One of the important roles that our team plays is coordinating vulnerability information among a broad range of vendors. Over the years, we have gained a considerable amount of experience communicating with vendors of all shapes and sizes. Based on this experience, we can offer some guidance to vendors about communicating product security issues. Information Security Policies and Procedures Part 2 This is part of an ongoing series on documentation development. Please be sure to read the previous posts in this series: Part 1Knowing which policies are necessary in your environment can be a challenge. Most organizations will have at least some formalized policies. Many of these are in response to legal requirements (HR policies) or specific incidents. After someone leaves their laptop in the car trunk for 6 hours on a 100 degree day, a policy on the care of equipment is generally issued.
