If the vulnerability column has a certain value then a new column called ‘Software_Affected’ has a corresponding value like below--

  1. DES” is in the vulnerability column then the new ‘Software Affected’ column value is “3DES”
  2. 7-Zip” is in the vulnerability column then the new ‘Software Affected’ column value is “7-Zip”
  3. Acrobat”is in the vulnerability column then the new ‘Software Affected’ column value is “Adobe Acrobat”
  4. Flash” is in the vulnerability column then the new ‘Software Affected column value is “Adobe Flash”

Thanks for your help. This is the best forum !!!

| eval "Software Affected"=case(match(vulnerability,"*Flash*"),"Adobe Flash", match(vulnerability,"*Acrobat*"),"Adobe Acrobat",match(vulnerability,"*7-Zip*"),"7-Zip",match(vulnerability,"*DES*"),"3DES","Unknown")

If you have a large number so that using case isnt efficient, then using a lookup as @diogofgm recommends:

| lookup yourlist vulnerability OUTPUT Software_Affected

from where do you get 3DES in the first sample and how do you add adobe to the last?

You can use a lookup configured to use wildcards

create your lookup like this
"vulnerability","software_affected"
Flash”,“Adobe Flash”
etc

and then follow the steps in this answer
