Severity Ranking

To assist in prioritizing remediation, Horangi provides a severity ranking based on the impact to an organization. The risk severity model is based on the Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS) version 3 published by the National Vulnerability Database.

Severity: Critical

CVSS 3 Score: 9.0 - 10.0

Critical severity findings indicate that the discovered weakness requires immediate remediation and/or mitigation. Critical findings typically represent weaknesses that were leveraged to gain access to systems or data that commonly have financial or reputation loss factors attributed.

Severity: High

CVSS 3 Score: 7.0 - 8.9

High severity findings indicate that the discovered weakness is publicly disclosed and trivial to abuse. High findings typically represent weaknesses that were leveraged to gain privileged access to networks, systems, or applications.

Severity: Medium 

CVSS 3 Score: 4.0 - 6.9

Medium severity findings indicate weaknesses are likely to lead to compromise but either requires other attacks to be significantly impactful, resulting in limited access, or require advanced knowledge and techniques to execute the attacks.

Severity: Low

CVSS 3 Score: 0.1 - 3.9

Low severity findings indicate weaknesses that are not directly exploitable. Low findings typically require a chain of weaknesses to exploit fully, disclose non-sensitive technical information, or do not lead to any additional compromise within an environment.

Severity: Informational

CVSS 3 Score: N/A

Informational severity findings are reserved for weaknesses that represent a deviation from best practice or a weakness that should be reviewed because it may expose other weaknesses or lead to future vulnerability. While these weaknesses don’t directly lead to compromise, they still represent potential risk and should be addressed.
