The number of reported Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures (CVE) is rapidly growing. In fact, more than 11,000 vulnerabilities have been reported so far this year. Common vulnerabilities are relatively easy for researchers and malicious actors to find, which is why we commonly see major breaches resulting from security issues that already have CVE numbers assigned to them. Both large global organizations and governments have been breached this way, leading to the theft of millions of client records.
