Subject: National Vulnerability Database (New Vulnerability Outage)
There has been a serious and unexpected failure with the National Vulnerability Database (NVD) and Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures (CVE) vulnerability processing system. While all newly discovered vulnerabilities are being processed internally, these vulnerabilities are not being added to CVE or NVD. Due to the nature of the problem, it may take several days before the situation can be resolved. At that time, you will see a surge in vulnerability publication activity as we catch back up.
We apologize profusely for the outage and assure you that this will never happen again. We take our job of providing a timely and comprehensive vulnerability service very seriously and we are working hard to constantly improve the service for you.
