Acting General Agent Coalition Inc. announced Thursday a vulnerability scoring system to help risk managers mitigate potential cyber threats.
The Coalition Exploit Scoring System uses real-time monitoring and dynamic scoring to determine which vulnerabilities should be patched first, the Coalition said in a statement.
The system leverages artificial intelligence and large language models to scan descriptions used within recently released Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures – a database of publicly known information security vulnerabilities – and compares them to previously published vulnerabilities to predict the likelihood that a company will be exploited.
The scores generated by the system provide IT and security managers with a priority list that describes which vulnerabilities pose the greatest threat.
“Thousands of new vulnerabilities are published every month and it is nearly impossible for IT and security teams to quickly understand and fix them all,”; Tiago Henriques, the coalition’s director of security research, said in the statement.
The online system is already used by the Coalition to assess risks and notify policyholders about them.
