Security advisory

Last updated on December 23rd, 2020 by Radostin Angelov. Filed under

A document that is published to disclose all the technical details of a zero-day vulnerability. Typically an advisory is published straight after the software vendor releases a security update for the affected software and sometimes it can also include a Proof of Concept. Considering the details available in advisories, which would allow malicious hackers to easily learn about the vulnerability, ideally the advisory should be published at a later date, giving the users enough time to update their software. In fact many security professionals have been quite vocal about the subject of responsible disclosure of vulnerability details and how it can be improved.
