Entry written by Secunia.

eWeek’s article, ‘Adobe Patches Critical Shockwave Player Bugs During February Update’, reviews the “heavy load of third-party patches to apply this month” and also highlights some of the findings from the Secunia Yearly Report 2011.

How to best deal with the patching challenge in light of increasing vulnerability threats is at the heart of Secunia’s analysis.

Referring to comments by Stefan Frei, Secunia’s Research Analyst Director, eWeek writes: “The applications that cyber-criminals take aim at are ‘often vastly different’ from what organizations think are likely to be targeted, said Frei. Administrators often focus on patching business-critical programs, not realizing that cyber-criminals will easily target less critical programs as well. Cyber-criminals ‘only need one vulnerable program to compromise the host,’ said Frei."
