VulnCheck Launches XDB: The Most Comprehensive Hub of Exploits for Modern Security Teams

Anthony Bettini

LEXINGTON, Mass. — May 25, 2023--VulnCheck, the vulnerability intelligence company, today announced the launch of VulnCheck XDB, the most comprehensive repository of exploits and proof-of-concepts hosted on git repositories. The complementary tool helps vulnerability researchers, offensive teams, and detection engineers prioritize the vulnerabilities that matter most and enhance security in company environments.

VulnCheck XDB crowdsources data while also scouring public records, threat research and open-source git repositories in real-time for exploit code. The complimentary exploit hub associates exploit proof of concept code with known CVEs. Users can access XDB on VulnCheck’s website and search by CVE to discover which vulnerabilities have written exploits, helping improve prioritization and security.

Today's exploits are no longer simple, one-file text documents. Modern exploits are often complex projects, pulling in multiple file types, and often chaining vulnerabilities together in such a way that leaves security teams at a significant disadvantage. Legacy databases are too slow given today’s rapidly changing threat landscape and often too cumbersome to be relied upon. Some even link data together in ZIP files that can contain malicious content. XDB takes a unique, modern approach to simplify the process of obtaining exploit information by monitoring the sources where modern exploits first show up, namely in git repositories.
