Abstract

Information security problems are currently a widespread and growing concern that covers most of the areas of society, such as business, domestic, financial, government, healthcare, and so on. Vulnerability has a high potential risk allowing a lot of destructive things happen in the computer as remote code execution, alteration of computer system files and files owns by the organization making the probability of a computer infection with nasty. Using a systematic approach, the paper offers a framework to deal with such vulnerabilities. The framework suggests specific courses of action for two possible scenarios. When there is no present threat, a proactive approach is suggested. When one or more threats are present, a reactive, Classification approach is suggested. Both approaches will be a strategic method for improving effective and efficient management of micro computing vulnerabilities. A related framework can be used in managing security vulnerabilities of other micro-computing devices in addition to desktops and laptop computers. A real case scenario from a network at the IBB University Lapai, Niger state, Nigeria is used to illustrate the proposed framework.
