Most vulnerable operating systems and applications in 2014 | Apple on the TOP

Most vulnerable operating systems and applications in 2014 | Apple on the TOP | Apple, Mac, iOS4, iPad, iPhone and (in)security... | Scoop.it

An average of 19 vulnerabilities per day were reported in 2014, according to the data from the National Vulnerability Database (NVD). In this article, I look at some of the trends and key findings for 2014 based on the NVD’s database.

.

#Mac OS X and #Linux had more #vulnerabilities in 2014 than ALL #Windows Versions in sum.

.


Not surprisingly at all, web browsers continue to have the most security vulnerabilities because they are a popular gateway to access a server and to spread malware on the clients. Adobe free products and Java are the main challengers but web browsers have continuously topped the table for the last six years. Mozilla Firefox had the most vulnerabilities reported in 2009 and 2012; Google Chrome in 2010 and 2011; Internet Explorer was at the top for the last two years.

To keep systems secure, it is critical that they are fully patched. IT admins should focus on (patch them first):

  • Operating systems (Windows, Linux, OS X)
  • Web browsers
  • Java
  • Adobe free products (Flash Player, Reader, Shockwave Player, AIR).

Serious security flaw in OS X Yosemite 'Rootpipe' | Cyber Security

Serious security flaw in OS X Yosemite 'Rootpipe' | Cyber Security | Apple, Mac, iOS4, iPad, iPhone and (in)security... | Scoop.it

Details are finally emerging about a serious vulnerability in Apple's OS X Yosemite, called "Rootpipe" which allows root access by attackers.


The privilege escalation vulnerability was discovered by Swedish hacker Emil Kvarnhammar, who has been asked by Apple to withhold details until January 2015 -- since Apple likely wouldn't allow details until they have a fix, this is probably when users can expect a patch.


Rootpipe is a privilege escalation from admin to root so switching to a non-admin account would clearly be a good thing," Kvarnhammar said.

L’iPhone 5S a été mis à mal par une équipe de Corée du Sud, qui a réussi à profiter d'une combinaison de deux bugs dans Safari pour en prendre le contrôle. Le Samsung Galaxy S5 non plus n'a pas réisté aux assauts des hackers. Deux équipes ont profité de failles dans la gestion du protocole NFC pour en prendre le contrôle. le Nexus 5 a lui aussi été piraté via NFC, grâce à une technique étonnante, qui a consisté à forcer un appairage Bluetooth entre deux appareils.
