Vulnerability Hosts Explorer

The Vulnerability Hosts Explorer report provides a summary of the most vulnerable assets in your environment. The report provides the following:

  • Total hosts count and vulnerable hosts count
  • Percentages of hosts with vulnerabilities
  • Host distributions by CVSS severity ratings
  • The top 10 view of your most vulnerable hosts

Alert Logic assigns each vulnerability one of the following severities based on the CVSS score from the National Institute of Standards and Technology 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
Not Scored No CVSS Score available

Use this report to determine where to focus resources and remediation efforts, or identify administrators that require additional guidance.
