53% of 2,867 advisories contained vulnerabilities that have already been exploited.
More than 80% of vulnerabilities have patches available on the day of disclosure.
Zero-day vulnerabilities – those exploited prior to public disclosure – remain rare.
The annual Vulnerability Review analyses the evolution of software security from a vulnerability perspective. The review presents global data on the prevalence of vulnerabilities, exploits, availability of patches and then maps the security threats to IT infrastructures.
In recent years, new exploitations of known software vulnerabilities have made global headlines. In 2017, we saw the WannaCry attacks and the Equifax breach. 2019 saw the Capital One and First American data breaches. Breaches and attacks have become so common that it’s no longer a question of if, but when, a vulnerability will be attacked.
This review provides data on vulnerabilities, enabling businesses to understand the vulnerability landscape and devise strategies to secure what matters to them.
