CVE Information on DuckDuckGo


A couple of days ago I was searching for informationen on a specific Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures (CVE). I am using DuckDuckGo as my search engine of choice and they provide a lot of information right on the search page in so called Instant Answers and I was a bit baffled that no information for my CVE showed up right away.

As a software developer, my spontanous reaction was to create a new instant answer to display CVE information.

CVE information as Instant Answer on DuckDuckGo search engine

You can already use the instant answer on the Beta server. I hope the PR gets merged soon so all users of DuckDuckGo can get information about CVEs quickly.

The development process itself is pretty straight forward:

  • Fork the zeroclickinfo-spice repository
  • Set up your development environment in your browser using codio
  • Hack some python and javascript
  • Run the duckduckgo server on codio and test your code
