CERT Coordination Center 2001 Annual Report

Annual Report
A report of the CERT Coordination Center activity for 2001.

Software Engineering Institute


From January through December 2001, the CERT/CC received 118,907 email messages and more than 1,417 hotline calls reporting computer security incidents or requesting information. We received 2,437 vulnerability reports and handled 52,658 computer security incidents during this period.

The CERT/CC published 37 advisories in 2001. Among the criteria for developing an advisory are the urgency of the problem, potential impact of intruder exploitation, and existence of a software patch or workaround. On the day of release, we send advisories to a mailing list, post them to the USENET newsgroup, and announce and make them available on the CERT website. To keep advisories current, we update them as we receive new information. The complete listing of advisories issued during 2001 can be found in Appendix A.
