Quantifying The Attacker's First-Mover Advantage

By Tenable


This report measures the difference in days between when an exploit for a vulnerability becomes publicly available (Time to Exploit Availability) and when a vulnerability is first assessed (Time to Assess). A negative delta indicates that the attacker has an opportunity to exploit a vulnerability before the defender is even aware of the risk. The sample set used for this analysis is based on the 50 most prevalent vulnerabilities from nearly 200,000 unique vulnerability assessment scans.
