OSVDB’s goal is to provide accurate and unbiased information about security vulnerabilities in computerized equipment. The core of OSVDB is a relational database which ties various information about security vulnerabilities into a common, cross-referenced data source. Data is acquired from common security industry sources, entered into the OSVDB database, and cross referenced with existing information.
The OSVDB blog discusses various topics related to vulnerabilities including disclosure, running a vulnerability database (VDB), and more. All material is the opinion of OSVDB staff and/or the Open Security Foundation, our parent 501(c)(3) not-for-profit that manages and funds the project.
