  3. On the By Vulnerability Instances page, click the Risk Score column heading to sort the vulnerabilities by risk score.
  4. To investigate the CVSS metrics that are used to derive the risk score, hover your mouse on the Risk Score field.
  5. Identify the vulnerability that has the highest score and click the Vulnerability link.
  6. In the Vulnerability Details window, investigate the vulnerability:
    1. To view the Juniper Networks Security Systems website, click the X-Force link.

    2. To view the National Vulnerability Database website, click the CVE link.

      The Juniper Networks Security Systems website and National Vulnerability Database provide remediation information and details on how a vulnerability might affect your organization.
