Vulnerabilities

The Vulnerabilities section is the first one you see when clicking on one of your group's names.

Vulnerabilities Table

In the Vulnerabilities section, you find a table containing all the types of vulnerabilities reported in the selected group. This table has nine columns, which you can choose to show and hide as described below in Filtering your vulnerabilities table.

Vulnerability Table First Half

  • Type: The name of the type of vulnerability from our standardized set whose characteristics are met by the vulnerability found in your system.
  • Age: The number of days elapsed since the type of vulnerability was found in your system for the first time.
  • Last report: The number of days elapsed since we found a vulnerability of that specific type, regardless of its open or closed status.
  • Status: The condition of the type of vulnerability, which is Open if at least one vulnerability has not yet been remediated; otherwise, it is Closed.
  • Severity: The CVSS (Common Vulnerability Scoring System) base score given to the type of vulnerability.
  • Open vulnerabilities: The number of files where the type of vulnerability was found and is still open; that is, not yet remediated.
  • Remediation %: The percentage of closed vulnerabilities of that type.
  • Locations: The name of one specific file where the type of vulnerability was found. (However, if this type was found in several files, you should click on it to see a complete locations table.)
  • Reattack: The status of the reattacks for the type of vulnerability, which is Pending if at least one requested reattack is due to one of the vulnerabilities of this type; otherwise, it is just a hyphen.

There is also a downward-facing arrow on the left of the Type column, which, upon click, will unfold the description for each type of vulnerability shown in the table, along with extra information. Namely, whether the type of vulnerability is exploitable and the number of files grouped by the treatment option that has been defined for them.

Filtering your vulnerabilities table

Above the table showing your types of vulnerabilities, there are three buttons: two for filtering and one for generating reports.

One way of filtering the table is by hiding or showing columns. To do this, you need to click the Columns button. This will cause a pop-up window to appear, from which you can enable and disable columns.

Filtering Columns

The other way of filtering is accessible after clicking the Filters button. This action will make several filter options appear, corresponding to the variables that give columns their names.

Filters Button

The field Last report lets you filter by the amount of days passed since the last time the type of vulnerability was detected.

Filter Last Report

The field Type lets you filter by the type of vulnerability. The available types are the ones listed in the table.

Filters Type

The field Status lets you filter vulnerabilities by their open or closed status. Last in that first row is the field Treatment, which lets you filter by treatment options, as shown in the following screenshot:

Filters Status

The option called Severity (range) offers two fields, one for a minimum and the other for a maximum value, where you can set a range of CVSS scores (that go from 0 to 10) by which to filter the vulnerabilities.

The field Age lets you filter based on the days elapsed since the type of vulnerability was found for the first time in your system. Next is the field Locations, which lets you filter by the names of the exact locations in the repository where the vulnerabilities were found. Another option is to use the field Reattack, thanks to which you can filter vulnerabilities to see only either those that have a pending reattack or those that do not.

Lastly, the option called Release date (range) offers two fields to set a date range by which to filter the types of vulnerabilities that were reported within that time at least once.

Tracking tab

Knowing what happened with each vulnerability is quite important. So, it is essential for your team to obtain information such as dates, users and justifications for each change in the history of your security vulnerabilities. For this purpose, there’s the Tracking tab in the ASM. This tab gives you detailed information about each vulnerability in your software and the treatment each has received over time.

You can find the Tracking tab in two different places. One is in each specific vulnerability type, where you can have a global overview.

First Tracking Tab

The second Tracking tab can be accessed by first clicking on the Locations tab in a vulnerability type and then clicking on a specific location where the vulnerability was found. There you can find the tab, which will show you individual details on the file you chose.
