Webuser Article: Home PCs need patching every 4.8 days

Home PCs need patching every 4.8 days

The average home computer needs to have a new patch applied to cover security vulnerabilities in installed software programs every 4.8 days, Secunia has claimed.

Many home PCs don't have fully up-to-date software installed on them because the process of downloading and applying patches is too cumbersome, according to a security firm.

Having analysed the software installed on more than two million PCs around the world, the security firm claimed that in order for the typical home user to stay fully patched, an average of 75 patches from 22 different vendors need to be installed, requiring them to apply a patch every 4.8 days.
