Zero-day vulnerabilities

14 zero-day vulnerabilities were identified in 2013 - 10 of those in the top 50 software portfolio.

This makes 2010 and 2011 stand out as exceptions with 23 and 26 zero-day vulnerabilities respectively.

We have not seen a rise in the number of reported zero-day vulnerabilities in popular products.

The products used by the highest number of people are the ones zero-day vulnerabilities are primarily found in: You are exposed to the same amount of zero-day vulnerabilities when you use Top 50 programs or Top 400 programs.

10 zero-day vulnerabilities do not mean that 10 different programs in Top 50 contain zero-day vulnerabilities. The 10 zero-day vulnerabilities may be in the same product.

* Please note: You may notice differences in numbers published in 2014 and 2013. For example, the total number of vulnerabilities in 2012 in was recorded as 9,776 in the Vulnerability Review 2013. In the Vulnerability Review 2014, the total number of vulnerabilities in 2012 is listed as 9,875. The fluctuations in number of vulnerabilities are caused by amendments to Secunia Advisories after they were first published, and after the data was compiled for the Vulnerability Review. You may also notice differences in the products and vendors numbers published in 2014 and 2013. That is because we have revised the way we group products and updated our vendor databases, to ensure that the listings of both are more precise.
