Vulnerability research is the process of analyzing protocols, services, and configurations to discover the vulnerabilities and design flaws that will expose an operating system and its applications to exploit, attack, or misuse.

A security administrator needs vulnerability research:

  • To gather information about security trends, newly discovered threats, attack surfaces, attack vectors and techniques.
  • To find weaknesses in the OS and applications and alert the network administrator before a network attack.
  • To understand information that helps prevent security problems.
  • To know how to recover from a network attack.

An ethical hacker or a pen tester needs to keep up with the most recently discovered vulnerabilities and exploits to stay one step ahead of attackers through vulnerability research, which includes:

Discovering the system design faults and weaknesses that might allow attackers to compromise a system.

  • Staying updated about new products and technologies and reading news related to current exploits.
  • Checking underground hacking web sites (Deep and Dark websites) for newly discovered vulnerabilities and exploits.
  • Checking newly released alerts regarding relevant innovations and product improvements for security systems.
  •  Security experts and vulnerability scanners classify vulnerabilities by:
    • Severity level (low, medium, or high
    • Exploit range (local or remote)
