Find out how many vulnerabilities were discovered in the
50 most popular programs in 2013

Identifying the 50 most popular programs (the Top 50 portfolio)

To assess how exposed endpoints are, we analyze the types of products typically found on an endpoint.
For this analysis we use anonymous data gathered from scans throughout 2013 of the millions of
private computers which have the Secunia Personal Software Inspector (PSI) installed.

The total number of vulnerabilities in the Top 50 most popular programs was 1,208 in 2013, showing a 45% increase in the 5 year trend.

Most of these were rated by Secunia as either 'Highly critical' (68.2%) or 'Extremely critical' (7.3%).

The 1,208 vulnerabilities were discovered in 27 products in the Top 50 portfolio.

Vulnerabilities were discovered in 27 products from 7 vendors, and includes Windows OS.

With a 86.7% share, the primary attack vector in the Top 50 portfolio was Remote Network.

* Please note: You may notice minor differences in numbers published in 2014 and 2013. For example, the total number of vulnerabilities in 2012 in the Top 50 portfolio was recorded as 1,137 in the Vulnerability Review 2013. In the Vulnerability Review 2014, the total number of vulnerabilities in 2012 is listed as 1,166. The fluctuations are caused by amendments to Secunia Advisories after they were first published, and after the data was compiled for the Vulnerability Review.
