Vulnerability (computing):

  • In computer security, a vulnerability is a weakness which can be exploited by a threat actor, such as an attacker, to perform unauthorized actions within a computer system.
  • To exploit a vulnerability, an attacker must have at least one applicable tool or technique that can connect to a system weakness.
  • In this frame, vulnerability is also known as the attack surface.
