Submission + - US National Vulnerability Database Down Following Malware Infestation->

hypnosec writes: The US government's National Vulnerability Database (NVD) maintained by National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) is offline since a few days because of malware infestation. The public facing site has been taken offline since last Friday because traces of malware were found on two of the web servers that house the NVD. A post on Google+ containing an email from Gail Porter details the discovery of suspicious activity and subsequent steps taken by NIST. As of this writing the NVD website is still serving a page not found message.
