Understand the top exploit and exploitable vulnerabilities leveraging CISA KEV Yearly report on the top targeted vulnerabilities

What is CISA?

CISA works with partners to defend against today’s threats and collaborate to build a more secure and resilient infrastructure for the future.

The Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) plays a pivotal role in safeguarding the cyber landscape. One of its key contributions is the CISA KEV (Known Exploited Vulnerabilities) catalogue, a comprehensive database that highlights the most exploitable vulnerabilities. This catalogue is not just a list; it’s a critical tool for vulnerability management and application security, providing actionable insights for organizations to prioritize their security measures. Aside from KEV a common publication with other partners is the Top routinely exploited vulnerabilities

CISA Top Routinely Exploited Vulnerabilities for 2022

Understand the relation between top exploited vulnerabilities and other dataset for the 2022 top exploited vulnerability

The Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) plays a pivotal role in safeguarding the cyber landscape. One of its key contributions is the CISA KEV (Known Exploited Vulnerabilities) catalogue, a comprehensive database that highlights the most exploitable vulnerabilities. This catalogue is not just a list; it’s a critical tool for vulnerability management and application security, providing actionable insights for organizations to prioritize their security measures.

By correlating top exploited methods with actual exploits in the wild, CISA KEV enables organizations to move beyond theoretical risks to address actual threats. This targeted approach enhances both vulnerability management and application security, allowing organizations to allocate resources more effectively.

Analyzing CISA KEV Through Data Visualization:


Unlocking Vulnerability Management with CISA KEV: Understand the top exploited vulnerability

One of the standout features of the CISA KEV Top exploitable vulnerabilities is its focus on top exploited methods, such as Remote Code Execution (RCE) and Arbitrary Code Execution. These methods are not randomly chosen; they are based on real-world exploits, making the catalogue an invaluable resource for understanding the current threat landscape. For instance, vulnerabilities like CVE-2018-13379 affecting Fortinet SSL VPNs and CVE-2021-34473 targeting Microsoft Exchange email servers are highlighted due to their frequent exploitation using specific methods like RCE. 

By linking exploitable vulnerabilities with attack methodologies and frequently targeted products, CISA KEV provides a multi-dimensional view of the security landscape. This enables organizations not only to understand but also anticipate and defend against the most likely threats, thereby enhancing both vulnerability management and application security. This can help prioritise methodologies of attacks and streamline your vulnerability management and application security program. for a deeper analysis refer to top exploitable vulnerability deep dive

With cyber threats growing in sophistication, understanding exploitability has become crucial for security teams to prioritize vulnerabilities effectively. This article explores the key factors that influence the likelihood of exploits in the wild, including attack vectors, complexity levels, privileges required, and more. You’ll learn how predictive scoring systems like EPSS are bringing added dimensions to vulnerability analysis, going beyond static scores. We discuss the importance of monitoring verified threat feeds and exploiting trends from reliable sources, instead of getting distracted by unverified claims and noise. Adopting a risk-based approach to prioritization is emphasized, where critical vulnerabilities are addressed not just based on CVSS severity, but also their likelihood of being exploited and potential business impact. Recent major exploits like Log4Shell are highlighted to stress the need for proactive security. Equipped with the insights from this guide, you’ll be able to implement a strategic, data-backed approach to focusing on the most pertinent risks over the barrage of vulnerabilities.
