Hi Zaki,

A good glossary of terms was produced by the Threat Modelling project:
http://lists.owasp.org/pipermail/owasp-threat-modelling-project/2011-April/000032.html

points to:
https://docs.google.com/document/pub?id=1PW4tnZXjeFioSr2B0014QMLm6hBC8E1AHeeEMlGyIL4

which explains/provides a diagram for vulnerability, threat and much more.
