There are many software applications being developed daily all over the world, but unfortunately those applications usually contain problems and vulnerabilities because of poor programming practices or poor development strategy used by developers. Those vulnerabilities are exploited by hackers for their malicious intents. To eliminate this problem we have designed and developed the system for comprehensive analysis of vulnerabilities and management of patches. Our system a) autonomously collects the most current information about vulnerabilities, b) analyzes hosts in the local network for potential vulnerabilities, and finally c) applies autonomously appropriate patches. Our testing results show significant decrease in intrusions and at the same time improved network management for system administrators.
