Almost one year ago, we posted statistics from the Secunia PSI about the state of programs installed on PCs.
We think the timing is just right for a follow up on the previous numbers - as you might have noticed, Tuesday last week (25th Nov) version 1.0 of the Secunia PSI was released. The Secunia PSI 1.0 is out after being in beta for the past 17 months - a huge thanks goes out to all 793,478 users that helped us test and improve the Secunia PSI during this period.
Over the course of the past week since we released the Secunia PSI 1.0, it has been successfully installed more than 120,000 times, thus we believe it's off to a pretty good start! - Did we mention you are most welcome to promote the PSI to family and friends ;o)
However, with this blog we're focusing on the number of insecure programs on a per PC/user basis.
About the data used in this blog entry We have used statistics collected from NEW users of the Secunia PSI 1.0 during the last 7 days. The statistics in this blog is based on data from exactly 20,000 PCs/users.
The data used, is collected from the very first scan a user has conducted, that is, before the user has started securing their system (patching installed programs) with the Secunia PSI 1.0. http://secunia.com/blog/37/
