NVD: It’s Another Record Year for Vulnerabilities

InfoSecurity ran an article on the new record year of vulnerabilities. The US-CERT has recorded more vulnerabilities so far in 2021 than any year previously, the fifth year in a row this has happened.

At the time of writing, 18,376 vulnerabilities in production code were recorded in the US National Vulnerability Database (NVD), exceeding the 2020 record of 18,351.

However, there were fewer high severity bugs in the NVD than last year. In 2020 the figure reached an all-time-high of 4381, falling to 3630 so far in 2021.

To understand why these numbers have changed for 2021, InfoSecurity spoke with K2 Cyber Security’s CEO, Pravin Madhani.

K2 Cyber Security delivers the Next Generation Application Security Platform to secure web applications and container workloads against sophisticated attacks in OWASP Top 10 and provides exploitable vulnerability detection during pre-production. K2’s Platform is deployed on production servers for runtime protection of applications and on pen-testing/pre-production/QA servers for interactive application security testing to identify the location of the vulnerable code. K2’s solution generates almost no false positives, eliminates breaches due to zero-day attacks, detects attacks missed by traditional security tools like Web Application Firewalls and host based EDR, finds missed exploitable vulnerabilities and dramatically reduces security cost. K2 Cyber Security is headquartered in the USA and provides cyber security solutions globally.
