Vulndb is a vulnerability database and package search for sources such as NVD, GitHub and so on. It uses a built-in file based storage to allow offline access.
pip install appthreat-vulndb
This package is ideal as a library for managing vulnerabilities. This is used by dep-scan, a free open-source dependency audit tool. However, there is a limited cli capability available with few features to test this tool directly.
Cache vulnerability data
It is possible to customise the cache behaviour by increasing the historic data period to cache by setting the following environment variables.
- NVD_START_YEAR - Default: 2016. Supports upto 2002
- GITHUB_PAGE_COUNT - Default: 5. Supports upto 20
To periodically sync the latest vulnerabilities and update the database cache.
It is possible to perform simple search using the cli.
