Security Information


What is a vulnerability?

A security vulnerability poses a threat to the security of a computer system. There is a risk that the vulnerability could be exploited, and the affected computer system compromised. Vulnerabilities arise from, among other things, insufficient protection of a computer from attacks from the network (for example, lack of a firewall or other security software), programming errors in the operating system, web browsers, or other software applications running on the system.

What does CVE mean?

It stands for Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures (CVE) and is an industry standard that aims to introduce a common naming convention for vulnerabilities and other security issues in computer systems. Multiple naming of the same threats by different companies and institutions is supplemented by a serial number (e.g. CVE-2006- 3086) to ensure clear identification of the vulnerability. This enables a smooth exchange of information between the various databases of individual manufacturers.
