Software flaws, delayed patching reign so far this year

Third-party programs, such as Adobe Reader and Mozilla Firefox, are responsible for the steady increase in the number of software vulnerabilities affecting computer users, according to a new report released Monday by Secunia.

The Danish firm, which tracks software flaws, determined that the total number of vulnerabilities affecting a typical end-user is expected to reach 760 this year, up from 220 three years ago. Through the first half of this year, the total number of bugs facing an average user already has reached 380, nearly 90 percent of the total from all of last year.

The precipitous rise in vulnerabilities is attributable to researchers and criminals upping their focus on third-party applications.
