Summary : The security community has heavily adopted social-media such as Twitter. However, the ratio of valuable information to noise is very high which makes it hard to use efficiently and has many limitations
This presentation will demonstrate an online tool which can identify trending IT security items amongst the global community and can also build dynamic timelines of public vulnerabilities to help overcome limitations of manually maintained vulnerability repositories such as NVD. This presentation will also take a look at demographic specific trends, measuring vulnerability hype, and identifying technical vulnerability write-ups over many languages and social networks.
