Register for NVD Database Updates

Security professionals frequently use the NVD Database to discover what product-related vulnerabilities might exist in a given software system. However, new vulnerabilities are being discovered every day. Unless you check the NVD Database daily, it can be very difficult to stay confident that your systems are not vulnerable. To keep security-minded individuals informed, you can use this page to register to be notified when new vulnerabilities are reported. When you register a vendor and product, you will be notified when that product has a new CVE created for it or if any of its existing CVEs are updated.

To register for notifications, you must create an account and login (see top-right-hand corner for Login and Register links).

Once you are logged in, this page will display a drop-down box of vendors and products. When you select a new vendor, the Product field will be re-populated with the products corresponding to the selected vendor. If you wanted to be notified about Microsoft Active Directory, the Vendor and Product fields might look like this:

If you no longer wish to receive notifications for a specific product, use the Remove button to unregister it. You must use the Save button at the bottom to commit your changes and the Cancel button will revert any changes since your last save point. When new CVEs or existing CVEs are reported for a product you have registered for, you will receive an email containing all the recent updates.
