For analysis information technology and computer system vulnerabilities, this paper benefits from “systematic review analysis: 2000–2015” with two-time searches: One established using suitable keywords, the second performed inside references used by selected papers. A detailed approach for analysis vulnerabilities of an organization includes physical and infrastructure of an organization, software, networks, policies, and information system vulnerabilities. Our findings highlight the following to be the most important vulnerabilities of networks: buffer overruns, operating environment, resource exhaustion, race conditions, standardization of canonical form, and violation of trust, injection attacks, cross-site scripting, non-secure cryptography storage and failure to restrict URL access.
