Unpatched programs are a primary source of IT insecurity. But due to the complex and immeasurable scope of patching, it is neglected by the majority of private users. Not a viable approach to ensure online safety - Secunia has set out aggressively to change this!

Our latest whitepaper Security Exposure of Software Portfolios, reveals that in order for the typical home user to stay fully patched, an average of 75 patches from 22 different vendors need to be installed, requiring the user to engage in a patch action every 4.8 days.
