Hunting for CVE Exploits

Hunting for CVE Exploits in the Wild

What is CVE?

CVE stands for Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures. CVE is a list of entries — each containing an identification number, a description, and at least one public reference — for publicly known cybersecurity vulnerabilities.

Why Check Vulnerabilities?

Organizations should check their systems for CVEs because the presence of a CVE does not necessarily mean that there is an attack happening. But, if a CVE is present and unpatched, it offers attackers a potential avenue of attack.

How to Check Vulnerabilities?

To check for CVEs, you can use the National Vulnerability Database (NVD), which is sponsored by the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) National Cybersecurity and Communications Integration Center (NCCIC). The NVD is the U.S. government repository of standards-based vulnerability management data represented using the Security Content Automation Protocol (SCAP). This data enables the automation of vulnerability management, security measurement, and compliance.

But what is the problem with a standard CVE check?

The main problem is that it requires a lot of time and effort because you need to check each CVE one by one manually. Also, it can be error-prone because you might miss some CVEs or misinterpret the information. And the main problem – you never know the level of vulnerability you have: is it just a usage problem or hackers can exploit it?

This is where “In the Wild” comes in.

In the Wild is a Check Point research project that aims to provide actionable intelligence about CVEs that are being actively exploited in the wild.

So what to do?

One of the best ways to check for vulnerabilities is to look for CVE exploitation data. This can be done using a service like “IntheWild”. IntheWild is a free online service that allows you to search for CVE exploits in the wild. Simply enter a CVE ID into the search box, and IntheWild will return all known instances of that CVE being exploited. This is a great way to quickly check if a vulnerability is being actively exploited, and can help you prioritize which vulnerabilities to patch first.


As we all know, Check Point’s “IntheWild” is a powerful tool that allows users to check whether their organization’s vulnerabilities have been exploited in the wild. This is done by searching through a massive database of CVEs (Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures) and finding any that match the user’s inputted search criteria.

As the number of cyber-attacks increases, it has become more important than ever for businesses to stay ahead of the curve and protect their systems from being compromised. One way to do this is by hunting for CVE exploits in the wild. By doing this, you can identify potential vulnerabilities in your system and take steps to patch them before they are exploited. In this blog post, we will show you how to use the “in the wild” tool to check for CVE exploitation data.
