Differences Between Online CVE Portal and Microsoft Defender Security Center RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello all,

    Does anyone know why there are differences in the search results between the CVE online portal (https://cve.mitre.org/) and what is returned when searching in the Microsoft Defender Security Center?  In an example search we got 22 results in the Security Center and 25 from the online portal.  Does anyone know how frequently the Security Center is updated?  Any info you can provide is appreciated.  If you can point me to how the Security Center portal is updated that would also be helpful.

  • CVE contains vulnerability data for all products (including non-Microsoft) while Microsoft Defender Security Center only contain information about Microsoft products but in term of data both source would have the latest information.

  • Thanks but in the example the product they used for their search criteria was not a Microsoft product which is what prompted the question.  If the product is not from Microsoft our assumption was that they pulled the details of the vulnerability from the same source, clearly not, possibly from the CVE portal itself.  Thank you for your response.
