CVSS

The Common Vulnerability Scoring System or CVSS is a free and open industry standard for assessing the severity of computer system security vulnerabilities. CVSS attempts to assign severity scores to vulnerabilities, allowing responders to prioritize responses and resources according to threat. Scores are calculated based on a formula that depends on several metrics that approximate ease of exploit and the impact of exploit. Scores range from 0 to 10, with 10 being the most severe.

Mailmaps

These are the rules that must be followed at the time of documenting the mailmap:

  1. Use the email address of the provider over the one of the client.
  2. Do not map by default a non-corporate email such as userdeveloper <[email protected]>.
  3. In order to map a non-corporate email to a corporate one, written request from the client is required.

ToE

The Target of Evaluation or ToE is the product or system that will be the subject of the penetration testing done by Fluid Attacks. The ToE is mostly defined by specifying which git repositories and/or environments you want us to check by adding Git Roots and its environments in the Scope section of a group.

White box

The white box is a service where the hacker has all the information privileges such as Git roots, credentials, source code and environments.

Black box

The black box is a service where the hacker does not have access to source code or information of the IT structure of the project, having only access to IP and URL, environments being these services deployed.
