The research team has identified a total of 31 published CVEs, an average of one CVE every 11 days and this is the result of a great job that TIM is doing, especially in the Bug Hunting activities, where the Italian cybersecurity community should do much more.

The full list of CVEs discovered by the researchers is available at the TIM Corporate websites:


TIM is a leading Italian telco carrier, it is one of the few Italian industrial realities that dedicate an important effort in conducting research of undocumented vulnerabilities, for this reason, I suggest you follow them.
