Chapter 3. Reports by CVEs

You can create PDF reports showing a filtered list of CVEs your systems are exposed to. Give each report a relevant name, apply filters, and add user notes to present focused data to specific stakeholders.

You can apply the following filters when setting up the PDF report:

  • Security rules. Show only CVEs with the security rules label.
  • Known exploit. Show only CVEs with the Known exploit label.
  • Severity. Select one or more values: Critical, Important, Moderate, Low, or Unknown.
  • CVSS base score. Select one or more ranges: All, 0.0-3.9, 4.0-7.9, 8.0-10.0, N/A (not applicable)
  • Business risk. Select one or more values: High, Medium, Low, Not defined.
  • Status. Select one or more values: Not reviewed, In review, On-hold, Scheduled for patch, Resolved, No action - risk accepted, Resolved via mitigation.
  • Publish date. Select from All, Last 7 days, Last 30 days, Last 90 days, Last year, or More than 1 year ago.
  • Applies to OS. Select the RHEL minor version(s) of systems to filter and view.
  • Tags. Select groups of tagged systems. For more information about tags and system groups, see System tags and groups
  • Advisory. Select whether to display only CVEs that have associated advisories (errata), only CVEs without advisories, or all CVEs.

The CVE report lists the CVEs, linking each to the respective CVE page in the Red Hat CVE database so you can learn more about it. The list is ordered primarily by the publish date of the CVE, with the most recently published CVEs at the top of the list.
