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.
