A Vulnerability Database is a platform aimed at collecting, maintaining, and disseminating information about discovered vulnerabilities targeting real computer systems. Currently, there are many vulnerabilities databases that have been widely used to collect data from different sources on software vulnerabilities (e.g., bugs). These data essentially include the description of the discovered vulnerability, its exploitability, its potential impact, and the workaround to be applied over the vulnerable system. Examples of web-based vulnerabilities databases are the National Vulnerability Database and the Open Source Vulnerability Database.
