Secunia’s Half Year Report 2010 has some results that surprised me, and I’m sure it’ll surprise many others. Microsoft historically used to get beaten up a lot about security vulnerabilities and Apple and their fanbois love to say that PCs get more viruses than Macs. Well, this report has some surprising results.
So, which vendor has the most security vulnerabilities?
Yep, that’s right, Apple. and they were in second place 2007-2009.
Oracle was in top place from 2007-2009 but got lea-frogged by Apple in 2010.
Microsoft is in 3rd place 2007+
The big mover and shaker in this chart?
Adobe didn’t even feature until 2008 (10th place) and have jumped up to 5th place in 2 years.
The report makes for some interesting reading and should dispel a few urban myths.
