Join Mike Chapple for an in-depth discussion in this video Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS), part of SSCP Cert Prep: 3 Risk Identification, Monitoring, and Analysis.
- [Instructor] Let's dig in to the common vulnerability…scoring system, because you'll see CVSS scores…used on scan reports.…CVSS does assign a score to each vulnerability…using a 10-point scale.…We can figure out a CVSS score by first evaluating…six different metrics and then combining the results.…The first metric is the attack vector metric,…abbreviated AV.…This metric describes the type of network access…that an attacker must have in order to exploit…a vulnerability.…
The value for this metric can be local,…meaning that the attacker must have…physical or logical access to the system,…or it can be adjacent network,…meaning that the attacker must have access…to the system's local network.…Or it can be network, meaning that the vulnerability…is remotely exploitable.…The next metric is the access complexity metric.…This metric measures how difficult it is…to exploit the vulnerability.…We assign this metric a value of high…if the vulnerability requires specialized conditions…and difficult work, medium if it's challenging…
