Viewing vulnerability details
Use the Vulnerability details page to identify which nodes are affected by the vulnerability, and using the analysis and remediation details determine which task to run on the nodes to help fix the specific vulnerability.
- Risk score - the risk score value assigned to the vulnerability by your vulnerability scanner.
- Nodes affected - the number of nodes the vulnerability was detected on.
- Infrastructure affected - the percentage of your entire infrastructure the vulnerability affects.
- Accepted risks - The number of vulnerabilities you have instructed Remediate not to report on for selected nodes.
If provided by your vulnerability scanner, the following CVE details are displayed for each vulnerability.
|CVE ID||The CVE ID is an unique identifier for a security vulnerability and is the
number sequence of a CVE entry. For example,
CVSS base score
CVSS V3 base score
|Depending on how easy it is to exploit the vulnerability and how damaging it can be, each vulnerability is assigned a base score in the Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS) which ranges from zero to ten.|
CVSS temporal score
CVSS V3 temporal score
|The temporal score is calculated using metrics on how likely the vulnerability is to be exploited, on how easy the vulnerability is to fix, and on how confidently it can be said that a vulnerability exists.|
The Latest events area lists the last three tasks carried out to remediate the vulnerability. Mouse over each task to see who initiated the task, any comments they made, how many nodes were affected, and how long ago the task was run. Click an individual task to go to the Vulnerability Task Detail page for more information about the chosen task.
