Record number of critical and high severity vulnerabilities were logged to the NIST NVD in 2020
A record number of critical and high severity vulnerabilities were logged to the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) and its National Vulnerability Database (NVD) in 2020. THE NVD is a repository of Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures (CVEs) reported by security professionals, researchers and vendors. It is used by security teams around the world to stay up to date with security vulnerabilities as they are discovered. In January 2021, Redscan performed an analysis of the NVD to examine security and vulnerability trends. Their report focuses on vulnerabilities discovered in 2020, but also highlights wider CVE trends that have emerged since 1989.
