Hi,
This seems good. But dont know why it doesnt show the number of exploits althought the heading is there but its blank beneath. Any idea how to get it ?

As i have to specifically look for vulnerabilities that are widely exploited....
Or if its listed on this page then i can assume that it must be widely exploited

The report that i am making I have to write its impact on society/economy...also...
Not sure if all the vulnerabilites are so big to have a huge impact... ( some examples that i came across or read about  Code Red worm and its variants, ping of death)

Wanna cry was recently very widely exploited and caused massive impact worldwide. 
Well, EternalBlue was the name of the exploit of SMB1, which Microsoft had already released patches for. WannaCry was the name of the malware used in the attack that used the EternalBlue exploit.
