CVSS V4.0: High Fidelity Vulnerability Assessment Unveiled
- The Forum of Incident Response and Security Teams (FIRST) releases CVSS v4.0.
- It aims to provide the highest level of vulnerability assessment.
- This update comes eight years after CVSS v3.0 which was released in 2015.
A New Standard in Vulnerability Assessment
The tech universe had its “aha” moment as The Forum of Incident Response and Security Teams (FIRST) laid out the next version of the Common Vulnerability Scoring System standard. Say hello to CVSS v4.0! After an eight-year break from the release of CVSS v3.0, we finally have something new to chat about around the tech water cooler!
This isn’t like that tie-dye t-shirt you bought and never wore, either. CVSS v4.0 is primed to become an industry staple, the new black, if you will, in vulnerability assessment. In fact, FIRST is pointing to CVSS v4.0 as the highest fidelity of vulnerability assessment, which is like saying it’s the Lamborghini of its kind. Quite impressive, eh?
Industry & Public Interest in Mind
FIRST has not just released this upgrade for the lulz. They’re serious about helping both the industry and public. You know, like that buddy of yours who pokes and prods your security systems just to make sure they’re in check? Yeah, that’s FIRST for you, with a dollop of formal and a gallon of helpful thrown into the mix.
Summarizing it all
In a nutshell (or is it a server rack?), FIRST’s release of CVSS v4.0 represents a major boost to vulnerability assessments of security systems. It’s been a long wait since the CVSS v3.0 release in 2015. But as is apparent, good things come to those who wait (or is that updates?). Either way, with its goal to serve both the industry and the public, CVSS v4.0 looks set to shift the tech talk around the vulnerabilities water cooler.
