Vulnerability Severity Indicators

Tenable assigns all vulnerabilities a static severity based on the vulnerability's CVSSv2 score.Tenable.io imports severity values every time you run a scan. For more information, see Severity vs. VPR.

To indicate this severity, the new Tenable.io interface displays vulnerabilities with one of the following severity icons:
