Secunia Country Reports

The Secunia Country Reports tell you how much vulnerable software is present on private PCs in your country, plus a few extra, interesting facts.

For example, did you know that...

11%

of US users had an unpatched Operating System.

68%

of German PC users had Oracle Java 7 installed. 43% of them hadn’t patched it. There were 125 vulnerabilities in Oracle Java 7.

69%

of UK PC users had Adobe Flash Player 13 installed which is an End-Of-Life program, and therefore no longer receives security updates from the vendor.

Why does it matter?

A vulnerable software program that isn't patched compromises the security of the PC. This is because it leaves the PC vulnerable to being exploited by hackers.
Vulnerabilities are discovered in software programs on a regular basis, and the vendor will release a patch for users to apply in the form of a security update. If users do not perform these updates, their PC will be vulnerable to attacks because hackers can use the vulnerability as an entry point.

It matters to your private security because:

If you do not update your software with the latest security update, you cannot be sure that it is secure. Hackers who exploit vulnerabilities can gain access to your computer and everything on it – including your bank and credit card details, your passwords, and all your social media activity.

It matters to your corporate security because:

Endpoints are where the most valuable data (business-critical data, personal information, etc.) is found to be the least protected.

Endpoints are also difficult to secure because of their extremely dynamic nature and unpredictable usage patterns, which are difficult to defend.

As the BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) trend is on the rise, IT security teams in the corporate world are finding it increasingly difficult to control and secure endpoints.
