GitHub Advisory Database

GitHub Advisory Database

The GitHub Advisory Database is a new experience that allows you to browse or search for the vulnerabilities that GitHub knows about. The database contains all curated CVEs and security advisories which have been mapped to a package tracked by the GitHub dependency graph. CVE numbers will also automatically be linked from within issues and pull requests back to the Advisory Database (e.g. typing CVE-2019-13611 will automatically link to this entry in the database).

query {

    nodes {
