Not all vulns are created equal.
When a new vulnerability prompts discussion on Twitter or hits media outlets, it can be difficult for security teams to wade through all the hype to determine risk and priority. How pervasive is the vulnerability? Is the expected shelf life long enough that it’s worth developing an exploit for? Is it worth dropping everything to patch or mitigate? Does an adversary or threat actor have a desire or motive to exploit the opportunity? Or is it actually… not useful or interesting?
Security researchers and hackers are almost always the first to shed light on the specific conditions and characteristics that make a vulnerability not just exploitable, but actually useful to attackers. AttackerKB was built to capture, highlight, and expand that knowledge for the whole security community.
