Known Exploited Vulnerabilities
The NVD has added information to its CVE detail pages to identify vulnerabilities appearing in CISA’s Known Exploited Vulnerabilities (KEV) Catalog. CVE appearing in the catalog will now contain a text reference and a hyperlink to the catalog. CVE not appearing in the catalog will not see any change. Information on exploited vulnerabilities and the affected products will also become available to developers when the NVD releases new APIs in late 2022.
CISA strongly recommends all organizations review and monitor the KEV catalog and prioritize remediation of the listed vulnerabilities to reduce the likelihood of compromise by known threat actors. All federal civilian executive branch (FCEB) agencies are required to remediate vulnerabilities in the KEV catalog within prescribed time frames under Binding Operational Directive (BOD) 22-01, Reducing the Significant Risk of Known Exploited Vulnerabilities. Although not bound by BOD 22-01, every organization, including those in state, local, tribal, and territorial (SLTT) governments and private industry can significantly strengthen their security and resilience posture by prioritizing the remediation of the vulnerabilities listed in the KEV catalog as well.
