DHS/US-CERT/NIST launches NVD



Wow – alphabet soup…. The National Instititute of Standards and Technology (NIST) has launched a National Vulnerability Database (NVD) sponsored by the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Divison US-CERT (US Computer Emergency Response Team). It looks like it will be a nice one place stop to find a good deal of current info.


It looks promising and I’ll be adding it to the links area. I did a search on wordpress to see if the recent (August 10th) advisory was there (non-CERT, had seen it on secunia). That vulnerability wasn’t listed, but I recognized several others. Hopefully this will come to be THE place for such info.

Thanks again to sunbelt blog for the tip.
