The CVSS Special Interest Group is proud to announce the official release of CVSS v4.0. This latest release marks a significant step forward with added capabilities crucial for teams with the importance of using threat intelligence and environmental metrics for accurate scoring at its core.

Critical in the interface between supplier and consumer, CVSS provides a way to capture the principal characteristics of a security vulnerability and produces a numerical score reflecting its technical severity to inform and provide guidance to businesses, service providers, government, and the public.

The numerical score can be represented as a qualitative severity rating (such as low, medium, high, and critical) to help organizations properly assess and prioritize their vulnerability management processes and prepare defenses against cyber-attacks.

Furthermore, this system allows the consumer to also assess real-time threat and impact, arming them with vital information to help to defend themselves against an attack.

The Common Vulnerability Scoring System is a published standard used by organizations worldwide, and this latest version of CVSS 4.0 seeks to provide the highest fidelity of vulnerability assessment for both industry and the public.
