|Issue||Security Advisories Severity Rating|
A security vulnerability is classified by its severity rating, which is determined by many factors, including the level of effort required to exploit a vulnerability as well as the potential impact to data or business activities from a successful exploit. RSA currently uses the Common Vulnerability Scoring System version 2.0 (CVSS v2) to identify the severity level of identified vulnerabilities. The full standard, which is maintained by the Forum of Incident Response and Security Teams (FIRST), can be found at http://www.first.org/cvss/cvss-guide.
When and where applicable, RSA Security Advisories will provide the CVSS v2 Base Score and corresponding CVSS v2 Vector for identified vulnerabilities. The CVSS v2 Base score is a number between 0 and 10 with 10 being the highest severity, and calculated from known details of the identified vulnerability (see the table below).
