        Security Update Guide Supports CVEs Assigned by Industry Partners

        Hi Folks,

        This month we are introducing a new data element for each CVE in the Security Update Guide, called Assigning CNA.

        First let me back up a bit and give some information about the CVE program. The purpose of a CVE is to uniquely identify a cybersecurity vulnerability. The CVE program was started back in 1999 and is funded by the US federal government, currently out of the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA). The MITRE Corporation is paid by CISA to administer the program. There is a board which consists of numerous cybersecurity-related organizations, including commercial security tool vendors, academia, research institutions, government departments and agencies, and other security experts, as well as end users of vulnerability information…

        The days of closed, single source proprietary products are really behind us now. This can make the job of ensuring that vulnerabilities are patched in a complex enterprise environment quite challenging. It is with this thought in mind that we are introducing this new Assigning CNA field. We will use this field if a vulnerability has been identified and addressed in an Open Source Library that is bundled in a Microsoft product…

        Microsoft: The following Chrome CVEs have been released on March 4, 2021.

        These CVE were assigned by Chrome. Microsoft Edge (Chromium-based) ingests Chromium,
        which addresses these vulnerabilities. Please see Google Chrome Releases
        ) for more information.
