Understanding Named Vulnerabilities and the Workfront Trust Site

What Is a Named Vulnerability? 

In computer security, a vulnerability is a weakness which allows an attacker to reduce the stability, the security, or the integrity of a system.

Vulnerability researchers and exploit creators name their projects internally to make it easy to reference them. When a vulnerability has wide-spread impact these names become public when the vulnerabilities are disclosed. 

For example, the following are some recent named vulnerabilities: ShellShock, Heartbleed, POODLE, and WannaCry/Petya.
