The Go Vulnerability Database
This repository is a prototype of the Go Vulnerability Database.
Read the Draft Design.
Neither the code, nor the data, nor the existence of this repository is to be
considered stable until an approved proposal.
Important: vulnerability entries in this repository are represented in an
internal, unstable format that can and will change without notice.
Consuming database entries
Database clients must not rely on the contents of this repository. Instead, they
can access the tree of JSON entries rooted at
index.json file maps module paths to last modified timestamps
For each module, a
NAME.json file contains a list of vulnerability entries
Note that this path and format are provisional and likely to change until an
Some of these packages can probably be coalesced, but for now are easier to work
on in a more segmented fashion.
