Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures

The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures (CVE) system tracks publicly known security vulnerabilities and exposures in publicly released software packages.

The MITRE Corporation, an American not-for-profit organization, maintains the system using funding from the United States Government to provide alerts and guidance for the general public and for U.S. government agencies.

CVEs are listed on MITRE's website and on the US National Vulnerability Database.
