Techworld: Software vendors fail to stem tide of security flaws

16:10 CET, 15th February 2012 By Secunia.

In the Techworld article, ‘Software vendors fail to stem tide of security flaws, report shows’, John E. Dunn reviews some of the key findings from Secunia’s Yearly Report for 2011. He focuses on the findings from the perspective of administrators who are likely to be overwhelmed by the scale of the patching task.

The article also covers the complexity of keeping an average end-point secure and the question examined by Secunia: which vulnerabilities matter the most – the large number of relatively obscure ones or those found in popular and shared products?

“The incorrect perception that Microsoft programs still represent the primary attack vector, means that defences based on this false assumption are as effective as locking the front door to your home while the back door remains wide open,” say the report authors.
