2023 CWE Top 25 is now available!

We have released a new version (2.17) of the Security Plugin for SonarQube™.

The version adds support for CWE Top 25 (2023) for both sections, SonarQube UI and PDF generation.

The latest “2023 Common Weakness Enumeration (CWE) Top 25 Most Dangerous Software Weaknesses” (CWE Top 25) list was released on June 21, 2023, on the CWE website.

The CWE Top 25 is calculated by analyzing public vulnerability data in the National Institute of Standards and Technology’s (NIST) U.S. National Vulnerability Database (NVD) for root cause mappings to CWE weaknesses for the previous two calendar years. These weaknesses lead to serious vulnerabilities in software. An attacker can often exploit these vulnerabilities to take control of an affected system, steal data, or prevent applications from working.

The 2023 CWE Top 25 also incorporates updated weakness data for recent Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures (CVE®) records in the dataset that are part of Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA)’s Known Exploited Vulnerabilities Catalog (KEV).
