Abstract

This paper describes the project and implementation of a vulnerability search and alert system based on free software. SisBrAV (acronym in Portuguese for Brazilian Vulnerability Alert System), will consist in a spider mechanism that explores several security-related sites for information on vulnerabilities and an intelligent interpreter responsible for analyzing and sorting the relevant data, feeding it into a database. With that information in hands, an email notifier sends out alerts, in Portuguese, about new vulnerabilities to registered clients, according to the operating systems and services run in their environment. In addition to the email notifier, a web server will also be implemented, for systems administrators to perform an on-demand custom search in the vulnerabilities database.
