CVSS scores and severity

Alert Logic assigns each vulnerability one of the following severities with corresponding icon based on the CVSS v2 score set by the National Institute of Standards and Technology, and reported to the National Vulnerability Database:

Severity CVSS base score
High 7.0 - 10.0
Medium 4.0 - 6.9
Low 0.1 - 3.9
Informational 0.0

Vulnerable Hosts section

This section provides the total number of hosts with vulnerabilities found by the selected scan.

Vulnerable Instances section

This section provides the total number of vulnerability instances found by the selected scan.

Vulnerabilities by Severity section

This section provides the vulnerability count and percentages in each CVSS severity category found by the selected scan.

Top 10 Vulnerable Hosts by Vulnerability Count section

The list provides the top 10 vulnerable hosts by total vulnerability count found by the selected scan. The list is organized by host name, IP address, vulnerability count, and a bar graph that represents the relative count of vulnerabilities by IP address. Hover the bar graph to see the relative percentage of vulnerabilities for each IP address.

Top 10 Vulnerable Hosts by High Severity section

The list displays the top 10 vulnerable hosts by high severity vulnerability count found by the selected scan. The list is organized by host name, IP address, high severity vulnerability count, and a bar graph that represents the relative count of high severity vulnerabilities by IP address. Hover the bar graph to see the relative percentage of high severity vulnerabilities for each IP address.

Scanned Host Summary Details section

The list provides the breakdown of vulnerable hosts by vulnerability severity found by the selected scan. The list is organized by IP address, host name, vulnerability, protocol/port, CVSS score, and the severity of the vulnerability. You can hover the severity bar to see a tooltip with additional details about the vulnerability.
