Publication of Security Bulletins and Warnings
The main task in providing this service is to announce in a timely manner and distribute appropriately the information concerning the cyber security at the national and international level.
SK-CERT unit for this purpose performs filtration and evaluation of information being gathered from more information sources.
In evaluation of vulnerabilities CVSS v 3.0 metrics is used. The CVSS calculator v 3.0 can be found on FIRST webpage here.
|0.1 – 3.9||Low|
|4.0 – 6.9||Medium|
|7.0 – 8.9||High|
|9.0 – 10.0||Critical|
If it is not possible to evaluate the information by CVSS v 3.0 metrics, other metrics for information evaluation are used (for example NCISS metrics) which are internationally recognized and used in evaluation of cyber-relevant information
We can divide the respective information in order of their importance into four categories according to which the respective documents with the warning content are published:
|Severity||CVSS Score (if applicable)||Warning Form|
|Low||0.1 – 3.9||Announcement on Webpage|
|Medium||4.0 – 6.9||Weekly Security Bulletin|
|High||7.0 – 8.9||Weekly Security Bulletin|
|Critical||9.0 – 10.0||Prompt Security Warning|
Announcement on Webpage contains the information with low importance which does not fundamentally affect the cyber security; anyway it is important to inform of such information.
Weekly Security Bulletin contains a set of warnings and alerts which may have an impact on the status of cyber security. The bulletin is published once a week and contains a set of information with medium and high importance from the previous week. The archive of security bulletins can be found on SK-CERT webpage.
Security Warning contains a specific warning with a critical importance which may have a fundamental impact on the status of cyber security at the national and also international level. It is issued, if necessary, in order to ensure an early warning of SK-CERT constituency as well as other potentially attacked entities. The security warning is immediately published on the SK-CERT website in the relevant section.
