Firefox most vulnerable browser, Safari close second
 
Cenzic released its report revealing the most prominent types of Web
application vulnerabilities for the first half of 2009. The report
details the steady rise of attacks targeting these exploits ultimately
costing the U.S. a substantial amount of money in both IT damage and
identity theft.

Specifically, the report identified over 3,100 total vulnerabilities,
which is a 10 percent increase in Web application vulnerabilities
compared to the second half of 2008. Cenzic analyzed all reported
vulnerability information from sources including NIST, MITRE, SANS,
US-CERT, OSVDB, OWASP, as well as other third party databases for Web
application security issues reported during the first half of 2009.

Popular vendors including Sun, IBM, and Apache continue to be among the
top 10 most vulnerable Web applications named. The most common published
exploits on commercial applications were SQL Injection and Cross Site
Scripting (XSS) vulnerabilities, which account for 25 percent and 17
percent of all Web attacks, respectively:

See:

The impartiality of the Cenzic report is thus seriously questionable.

Of course Max would not know any better, he showed his utter ignorance
of copyright law and the GPL severasl years.

"Has the GPL been tested in [a NZ] court?" Yeah right!
