Weekly Check-In #2

Published: 06/16/2021

What did you do this week?

I automated the process for retrieving the vendor-product pairs from the csv database that cve-bin-tool stores. I started by first retrieving the package name from the package filename provided by the user and then I automated the retrieving process with the help of "sqlite3" module. I also started working on the regex process (where I would be finding required strings in the binary).

What is coming up next?

This week I plan on completing the regex process (mentioned above) and also the file extracting process.

Did you get stuck anywhere?

I had small doubts here and there in the codebase, but my mentors helped me to get past them. :)
