Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures (CVE) System
Like other large software companies, iDirect now follows the Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures (CVE) standard. CVE provides a reference database for publicly known security vulnerabilities and exposures within company‐wide systems and software. This enables iDirect Partners to discover any vulnerability that may be present across iDirect software, along with the resolution to such issues.
Benefits of Using CVE‐Compatible Products and Services
Knowing that iDirect follows the CVE edict means that Partners can depend on iDirect to be aware of any issue in the field and publish a fix or patch to correct said issue. With its easily searchable database, you can verify whether an iDirect CVE report was published and follow the steps necessary to safeguard your network.
How to Find a CVE File
The CVE is free to use and available to anyone interested in correlating data between different vulnerability or security tools, repositories, and services. You can easily search using ‘iDirect’ as a keyword.
There are three ways to obtain CVE data: View CVE, Download CVE, or Search CVE.
- The View option will provide an HTML formatted listing of the current version of the CVE List. The top of the HTML listing will have a heading in the following format: CVE (version 19990929). This indicates it is a listing of all entries in CVE as of the version date, which is in the format “YearMonthDay.”
- The Download option will allow you to download the entire CVE List in various formats: (HTML, Text, or comma separated).
- The Search option allows you to search CVE by keywords or by CVE Identifier.
