This blog post is a summary of this week’s Information Security News put together by our Security Incident Response Team (SIRT).
It was October 1999. Macs had just got embedded Wi-Fi, Napster had launched, and Yahoo had purchased Geocities for $3.6bn. Something else happened that escaped most computer users at the time: CVE posted its first bug. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures (CVE) system is 20 years old this week.
Created by the non-profit Mitre Corporation, which oversees several federal government programs, CVE provides common identifiers for cybersecurity bugs, making them easier to track and fix.
