such as CVE, NVD and more. Data derived from these resources is analyzed, tested and enriched, before being included in the database.
Snyk Intel Vulnerability Database
Empowering agile development teams with trusted data and insights to rapidly secure open source codeSign up for free
Comprehensive security coverage
The Snyk Intel vulnerability database goes far beyond CVE vulnerabilities and other public databases, including many additional non-CVE vulnerabilities derived from numerous sources
Snyk exposes many vulnerabilities before they are added to public databases.
Because Snyk exposes many vulnerabilities before other sources you can detect and correct issues faster.
Vulnerability database methodologies
01Enriched data from numerous vulnerability databases:
02Dedicated proprietary research for new vulnerabilities:
Snyk’s dedicated security team is focused on uncovering severe vulnerabilities in key components. A recent disclosure by our team is Zip-Slip, see more examples in the footnote below.
Snyk collaborates with the community and operates bug bounties for new disclosures. This activity results in hundreds of community disclosures, such as f2e-server.
05Collaboration with academia:
The team partners with PhD academia labs such as Berkeley, Virginia Tech and Waterloo, to exchange tools, methods and data. Findings are then exclusively disclosed by Snyk
Team of security experts
Snyk’s security database is managed by a team of experts, researchers and analysts ensuring the database maintains a high level of accuracy with a low false-positive rate. Snyk database authority was validated by the leading security institutes. Snyk was granted a CVE numbering authority, it is a member of the Node foundation security membership group and a contributor member of OWASP. The team is headed by Snyk’s co-founder, Danny Grander, a veteran security researcher. Previously, Danny built cyber solutions for government agencies, led vulnerabilities research and managed research and development teams. Danny is a competitor and frequent winner of CTF at DefCon, CCC CTF, Google CTF.
Curated, enriched and actionable content
- Vulnerability description: hand-curated content and summaries, including code snippets where applicable.
- All items in the database are analyzed and tested for their accuracy (version ranges, vulnerable method, etc).
- CVSS score and vector assigned to 100% of vulnerabilities.
- Vulnerable functions called in runtime For issue prioritization, Snyk is able to alert when a vulnerable function is actually being called during the runtime of the application.
- Exploitability Snyk indicates when a vulnerability has a published proof of concept of how it can be exploited Published exploit code serves as a good indicator of exploitability because it enables attackers to easily weaponize a vulnerability.
