Vendors have historically used proprietary methods for scoring software vulnerabilities, usually without detailing their criteria or processes. The Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS) is a public initiative designed to address this issue by presenting a framework for consistently and accurately assessing and quantifying software vulnerabilities' impact on organizations.
Index Terms:
vulnerability assessment, Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures, CVE, National Vulnerability Database, NVD
