VULNERABILITY REVIEW - THE HIGHLIGHTS

Vulnerabilities in Microsoft and non-Microsoft programs
in the 50 most popular programs

We divide products in the Top 50 into these three categories:

- Microsoft programs. Represent on average 34% of the Top 50 programs on a computer with PSI installed.
- Third-party programs. Software from all other vendors - represents 66% of the Top 50 programs on a computer with PSI installed.
- Operating Systems. We track vulnerabilities in the most prevalent operating system, Windows 7

Over a five year period, the share of third-party vulnerabilities has hovered around 75%.

76% of vulnerabilities in 2013 affected third-party programs.

Microsoft programs (including Windows 7 OS) account for 66% of the products in Top 50, but were only responsible for 24% of the vulnerabilities.

8% of vulnerabilities in the Top 50 were discovered in the Windows 7 operating system, and 16% of vulnerabilities were discovered in Microsoft programs.

In 2012, the numbers were 86% (third-party), 5.5% (operating systems) and 8.5% (Microsoft).
