Forwarded from: Peter Mell <peter.mellat_private> NIST has been working with SANS to provide an enhanced top 20 vulnerability list. The original list produced by SANS and the FBI contained 20 important vulnerability areas with reference to over 140 specific vulnerabilities. We noticed that the specific vulnerability references were not hyperlinked to associated vulnerability information. We remedied this deficiency by providing SANS with a version of the document that links each of the 140 specific vulnerabilities to the associated vulnerability entry in the NIST ICAT Metabase ( http://icat.nist.gov ). For each vulnerability, ICAT provides a short description, vulnerability attributes (e.g. range and damage potential), vulnerable software and version numbers, and links to a variety of vulnerability and patch information. The revised top 20 vulnerability list is available from SANS at http://www.sans.org/top20.htm Peter Mell ICAT Project Lead - ISN is currently hosted by Attrition.org To unsubscribe email majordomoat_private with 'unsubscribe isn' in the BODY of the mail.
