Python API for CVE search.

Project description

Python application

Important Note: The API search endpoint has been removed from the public instance due to massive abusive behavior. You can use this API against a local version of CVE Search.

PyCVESearch is an easy to use wrapper around cve-search. Some of the calls will work against but for most of them, you need your own CVE Search instance. For the ones available on the public instance, see

This library is based on the work of Martin Simon and Kai Renken.
