Too Long; Didn't Read

A vulnerability is a weakness in the system, a threat actor can exploit the weakness, to perform unauthorized actions within organizational applications or network. Vulnerability management is the cyclical practice of identifying, classifying, remediating, and mitigating vulnerabilities. Using vulnerability with the identical meaning of risk can result in confusion. The danger is the potential of a major impact as a result of exploiting a vulnerability. We discover vulnerabilities with a vulnerability scanner, which analyzes a system in search of known vulnerabilities, like open/insecure ports, software miss configurations and susceptibility to malware infections.
