Severity levels may not always align to CVSS scores. For example, Snyk Container severity scores for Linux vulnerabilities may vary depending on NVD severity rankings; see Understanding Linux vulnerability severity for more details.
Severity and priority scoring
Severity levels are one factor feeding into Snyk's Priority Score for each vulnerability, along with factors such as Snyk’s Exploit Maturity and Reachable Vulnerabilities information. Together, this scoring helps developers determine which vulnerabilities should be addressed first.
