Just more than a year ago, the National Institute of Standards and Technology built an online database to help organizations track security flaws in popular software products.

The National Vulnerability Database Web site is on pace to receive 25 million hits per year, according to NIST, so users obviously like it. And the need for it has never been greater. The database, which began with a list of 12,000 vulnerabilities, recently hit 20,000, with no sign of slowing.
