Jargon Buster #2 Vulnerability

What is vulnerability

Courtney explains the term Vulnerability

This week, we explain what a vulnerability is, in our series of Jargon Busting video shorts.

Video transcript:

“A vulnerability is a weakness in computer software. Eventually, if you do not keep your systems up to date, you will have vulnerabilities. Say you’re using Microsoft Windows 7 but are failing to install updates – your system could exhibit vulnerabilities that can be attacked by a hacker because security safeguards are out of date.”
