CVE Insanity

CVSS is a headache for everyone, but we all use it. Has anyone actually checked to see if it works the way it should? Or where and why it fails? Trying to manually analyze every single CVE is painstaking. And what if CVSS isn’t actually working? Is there something better out there? What if we used science, like you know, an adult, and measured something? Grab your protractors and slide rules and sextants as we explore the exceedingly exciting world of vulnerability management, risk management’s slightly more edgy cousin. This talk will explore what rescoring vulnerabilities with CVSS does and doesn’t do, and what we should do next to fill the gaps. PREVIOUSLY: ChatGPT took the world by storm. But what if we tried to use it to write a clinical application? And do it securely? Will the code compile? Will the data actually be secure? This talk will go over a PoC where we put it to the test.
