Vulnerabilities provide doors for hackers and worms to enter into a system or network. They mostly result from a bad configuration or errors in operating systems, network services or applications.
In practice, it is often necessary to weigh up the risk of a possible impact due to a vulnerability against the risk of a possible impact due to an improperly performed remediation. Just blindly installing service packs or patches must be replaced with remedying the vulnerabilities in a deliberate and targeted way. This is realized by systematically recording the actually existing vulnerabilities and evaluating them while taking the actual infrastructure, applications and business process into account.
Vulnerability management is a process supported by suitable tools that gathers, edits, evaluates and distributes information about vulnerabilities and controls their remediation.
