Apple has Most Security Vulnerabilities per Secunia
Posted by Jeff Campbell in "Apple Software (OS X)" @ 08:00 AM
"Bad news, Oracle. You've slipped to second place for the first time in years. The good news is that it's in Secunia's ranking of the top ten companies with the most software vulnerabilities, which is now topped by Apple -- Microsoft remains in third place, followed by HP and Adobe."
The vulnerabilities include everything so it doesn't break down into which vendors have the most serious, it just lists which company has the most. I'm not being flippant, any vulnerability is a bad thing, but you have to admit some are more serious than others so a general listing like this is a bit deceptive if you want to know how serious the situation is from a normal users standpoint. This news does bring to to mind the auto-fill problem that we reported about yesterday, and news from Apple via AllThingsD is that they are aware and are working to fix the problem.
