IT security solutions provider Secunia has released Country Reports for Germany, the UK, the US, Denmark, Finland, Norway and Sweden. The studies contain some interesting data on how much vulnerable software is installed on PCs in each country.
For instance, in the US, 15.3% of users had an unpatched operating system in the first quarter of 2013. However, only 12% of the total of vulnerabilities affected the operating system, most of them (70%) being in third-party software.
