Revealed: the most vulnerable software applications

Concerned about your digital security? An American software asset management company has revealed its list of the 20 most vulnerable software applications businesses commonly use.

Flexera Software compiles a regular Vulnerability Update which highlights desktop computer programs that have been exploited.

Its list reveals that web browsers, PDF readers like Adobe Reader and even security programs such as IBM and McAfee are vulnerable.

Many of these programs are relevant to business owners in their day-to-day operations.

  • Web browsers enable business owners to access the internet, but can also accidentally activate viruses and malware;
  • PDF readers allow business owners to view .pdf files and are typically used to open digital copies of receipts and invoices; and
  • Security programs which are meant to protect business owners from cyber attacks. However, those that are not regularly updated are unaware of the most recent threats, which can go undetected.

Flexera’s list of the 20 most vulnerable software applications:

1. Adobe Reader
2. Adobe Acrobat
3. IBM PowerKVM
5. AlienVault Unified Security Management (USM)
6. OSSIM (AlienVault Open Source SIEM)
7. MySQL
8. Microsoft Windows 10
9. Microsoft Windows 8
10. Microsoft Windows RT
11. Juniper Junos OS
12. IBM Flex System Manager node (FSM)
13. Microsoft Windows Server 2012
14. MariaDB
15. IBM InfoSphere Information Server
16. McAfee Web Gateway
17. Avant Browser
18. Oracle VirtualBox
19. Oracle E-Business Suite
20. Juniper Network and Security Manager
