Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures (CVE®) is a dictionary of common names for known cybersecurity vulnerabilities. CVEs make it easier to share data across separate network security databases and tools. If a report from one security tools uses CVE Identifiers, it facilitates resolving problems found by indexing these vulnerabilities in other CVE-compatible databases.
Examples of identifiers in the CVE ID syntax are included below. There is no limit on the number of arbitrary digits. Leading 0’s will only be used in IDs 1 to 999, as shown in column one below.
|IDs with 4 digits||IDs with 5 digits||IDs with 6 digits||IDs with 7 digits|
