Most Vulnerable Operating Systems and Applications in 2014

The latest report by GFI has been published. This study shows the number of vulnerabilities were reported in 2014 of both operating systems and applications. One of the most surprising results for some people would be that Mac OS X and iOS were the most vulnerable. It is no surprise to anyone that monitors these things. Mac operating systems are often the most vulnerable. But the vulnerability of an operating system does not translate directly to the number of hacks that take advantage of the holes.

In short - you may be more vulnerable to being hacked if you own a Mac, but far fewer hacks are directed at you. To view the full report, go to:
