Vulnerability Trends

A vulnerability is a weakness that allows an attacker to compromise the availability, confidentiality, or integrity of a computer system. Vulnerabilities may be the result of a programming error or a flaw in the design that will affect security.
Vulnerabilities can affect both software and hardware. It is important to stay abreast of new vulnerabilities being identified in the threat landscape because early detection and patching will minimize the chances of being exploited. This section discusses selected vulnerability trends, providing analysis and discussion of the trends indicated by the data.
