Ubuntu CVE Priority

+2 votes
39 views

I can't find any kind of information about the Priority field of CVEs: how is computed/assigned, who calculate it, ecc

The only information I know is (source README file of ubuntu cve tracker):

Ubuntu Priorities
These are very similar to the Debian priorities, but with some differences.Priorities can be roughly mapped as:

negligible Something that is technically a security problem, but is only theoretical in nature, requires a very special situation, has almost no install base, or does no real damage. These tend not to get backport from upstreams, and will likely not be included in security updates unless there is an easy fix and some other issue causes an update.

low Something that is a security problem, but is hard to exploit due to environment, requires a user-assisted attack, a small install base, or does very little damage. These tend to be included in security updates only when higher priority issues require an update, or if many low priority issues have built up.

medium Something is a real security problem, and is exploitable for many people. Includes network daemon denial of service attacks, cross-site scripting, and gaining user privileges. Updates should be made soon for this priority of issue.

high A real problem, exploitable for many people in a default installation. Includes serious remote denial of services, local root privilege escalations, or data loss.

critical A world-burning problem, exploitable for nearly all people in a default installation of Ubuntu. Includes remote root privilege escalations, or massive data loss.
