Technical Details:
A gtk2 chm document viewer. It uses chmlib to extract files. It uses gecko to display pages. It supports displaying multilingual pages due to gecko. It features bookmarks and tabs. The tabs could be used to jump inside the chm file conveniently. Its UI is clean and handy, also is well localized. It is actively developed and maintained. The author of chmsee is Jungle Ji and several other great people. Hint * Unlike other chm viewers, chmsee extracts files from chm file, and then read and display them. The extracted files could be found in $HOME/.chmsee/bookshelf directory. You can clean those files at any time and there is a special config option for that. * The bookmark is related to each file so not all bookmarks will be loaded, only current file's. * Try to remove $HOME/.chmsee if you encounter any problem after an upgrade.

Vulnerability management is the process in which vulnerabilities in IT are identified and the risks of these vulnerabilities are evaluated. This evaluation leads to correcting the vulnerabilities and removing the risk or a formal risk acceptance by the management of an organization. The term vulnerability management is often confused with vulnerability scanning. Despite the fact both are related, there is an important difference between the two. Vulnerability scanning consists of using a computer program to identify vulnerabilities in networks, computer infrastructure or applications. Vulnerability management is the process surrounding vulnerability scanning, also taking into account other aspects such as risk acceptance, remediation etc. Source: "Implementing a Vulnerability Management Process".
