How Safe Are You?
Do you think your Linux devices are invulnerable? Or have security vulnerabilities already swamped your team and left you in the middle of a patch feeding frenzy?
The reality is that your devices are susceptible to security vulnerabilities. And they're very likely becoming more vulnerable with every reported exploit.
Reported Vulnerabilities since launch in 1997*

Now, as the number of exploitable software vulnerabilities continues to grow, find out what awaits your devices.
When did you deploy your devices in the field?
Date of deployment:
Your devices have been deployed for . That's more than .
Or, to put that in perspective:
The year you deployed your devices, there were approximately vulnerabilities uncovered. In total, they add up to reported CVEs since you launched your device. Do you know if you are exposed to them now?
Keep in mind that your devices have seen some pretty nasty Linux bugs. All of them caught vendors by surprise as the majority—large and small—first had to identify which of their products had been made vulnerable before they could begin to fix them.
If you were using Wind River Linux, none of this would have made you lose sleep. You would have been notified about the vulnerabilities affecting you.
What’s Coming Next?
How many vulnerabilities have your devices been exposed to? Use our tool to check on them.
How much longer will your devices be in the field?
End of life:
Your devices have left to go. That's more than .
During this time, at the current rates, your devices will probably face potential vulnerabilities.
Keeping current averages, we will probably fix of them, along with providing the peace of mind of knowing that the rest don't affect you.
This will probably save you the work of engineers, and more than in annual savings—in addition to protecting your brand reputation and financial assets.

Secure Throughout the Lifecycle with Wind River
With Wind River Linux and Wind River Studio Linux Services, you can rest easy knowing that the Wind River security team is constantly monitoring the Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures (CVE) database at cve.mitre.org for potential issues affecting Wind River Linux.
Our security team is monitoring specific security notifications from US Government agencies and organizations like NIST, US CERT, and also public and private security mailing lists, and receives email alerts from each of these organizations whenever a new security threat arises. Alerts include both community-confirmed and potential vulnerabilities—we look into all of them. Participation in these forums gives Wind River the opportunity to create patches for vulnerabilities even before the community publicly announces the vulnerability.
All the kernel features, user packages, and Linux tools, which are supported in the standard Wind River Linux distributions, are monitored for security vulnerabilities against the incoming reports.
When Wind River is notified of a potential vulnerability by one of the monitored advisory groups, we first determine whether any supported Wind River product is actually susceptible to the vulnerability.
Once the assessment phase is complete, we notify customers of the level of susceptibility.
Less severe vulnerability patches are delivered via the monthly product updates.
