Vulnerability Severity Indicators

Tenable assigns all vulnerabilities a severity (Info, Low, Medium, High, or Critical) based on the vulnerability's static CVSSv2 or CVSSv3 score, depending on your configuration. For more information, see Configure Your Severity Metric.

The Tenable.io interface uses different icons for each severity category and accepted or recasted status.
