Is there a tool to track CVEs for the software that we use?

Our great sponsors
  • Scout APM - Less time debugging, more time building
  • SonarLint - Deliver Cleaner and Safer Code - Right in Your IDE of Choice!
  • SaaSHub - Software Alternatives and Reviews
  • DependencyCheck

    OWASP dependency-check is a software composition analysis utility that detects publicly disclosed vulnerabilities in application dependencies.

  • Spotbugs

    SpotBugs is FindBugs' successor. A tool for static analysis to look for bugs in Java code.

    While at it you could also point them to static code analyzers such as error_prone, spotbugs and pmd (use all 3 at once - they complement each other in detecting different issues).

  • Scout APM

    Less time debugging, more time building. Scout APM allows you to find and fix performance issues with no hassle. Now with error monitoring and external services monitoring, Scout is a developer's best friend when it comes to application development.

  • PMD

    An extensible multilanguage static code analyzer.

    While at it you could also point them to static code analyzers such as error_prone, spotbugs and pmd (use all 3 at once - they complement each other in detecting different issues).

  • Error Prone

    Catch common Java mistakes as compile-time errors

    While at it you could also point them to static code analyzers such as error_prone, spotbugs and pmd (use all 3 at once - they complement each other in detecting different issues).

  • vulnmine

    Vulnmine searches for vulnerable hosts using MS SCCM host / software inventory data with NIST NVD Vulnerability feed data.

    It is hard. Look at vulmine and the logic behind it for feeding SCCM reports into it.

  • opencve

    CVE Alerting Platform

    there's also https://www.opencve.io/ which can be selfhosted if wanted

  • openvas-scanner

    This repository contains the scanner component for Greenbone Vulnerability Management (GVM). If you are looking for the whole OpenVAS framework please take a look at https://community.greenbone.net/t/frequently-asked-questions-faq/5558.

    I don't recommend cheaping out on vuln scanning, but if you really can't get any money there's always OpenVAS. That will allow you to do credentialed scanning and track vulnerabilities in your environment. It's no real substitute for Tenable or similar, but it's better than nothing.

  • SonarLint

    Deliver Cleaner and Safer Code - Right in Your IDE of Choice!. SonarLint is a free and open source IDE extension that identifies and catches bugs and vulnerabilities as you code, directly in the IDE. Install from your favorite IDE marketplace today.

  • Wazuh

    Wazuh - The Open Source Security Platform

    Hi, Wazuh employee here! I think that you might be interested in implementing Wazuh in your company, it's an open-source SIEM that allows you to monitor not only the CVEs that could affect the software that your company uses, but also misconfigurations that could lead to attacks from malicious actors, intrusion detection -such as detecting brute-forcing attacks-, and many other interesting capabilities.
