Infosec teams rely on metrics and frameworks to prioritize vulnerabilities and understand their potential impact as part of their vulnerability management programs. These metrics are crucial for organizations to assess the impact of any vulnerabilities identified during any type of vulnerability assessment. One such framework widely used by penetration testing organizations and security tools is the Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS).

A subdomain is a prefix added to a domain name to separate a section of your website. It’s a part of the Domain Name System (DNS) hierarchy and is a domain that is a part of another (main) domain. Subdomains are primarily used to manage extensive sections of a web application that require their own content hierarchy, such as online stores, blogs, job boards, or support platforms.
