The latest security information on Intel® products.

Severity

Intel uses the Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS) which provides a way to capture the principal characteristics of a vulnerability and produce a numerical score reflecting its severity. The numerical score is then be translated into a qualitative representation (such as low, medium, high, and critical) to help organizations properly assess and prioritize their vulnerability management processes. In the Intel Security Advisory we use the qualitative representation of the highest rated CVE in the table at the top of the security advisory.

 

Qualitative severity rating scale:

Rating CVSS Score
None 0.0
Low 0.1 - 3.9
Medium 4.0 - 6.9
High 7.0 - 8.9
Critical 9.0 - 10.0
