Unpatched Windows OS on the Rise

I put this up to remind you all to PATCH YOUR SYSTEMS! A Malware outbreak of epic proportions is on the loose and MS does have a patch for it. If you have not patched in last 30 days DO IT NOW! 

Computers running unpatched Windows operating systems in the US rose to 9.8% in the first quarter, up from 6.5% a year ago, according to the Country Report released this week by Secunia Research@Flexera.

The data also revealed that while unpatched Windows OS was on the rise, the percentage of vulnerabilities that started in the OS in the US also grew to 36% in the first quarter, from 21% a year ago. These statistics may seem surprising, given that 81% of vulnerabilities in all products last year had patches available on the day they were disclosed, according to Flexera's annual Vulnerability Review.

"Frankly, if you wait two months to apply a critical Microsoft patch, you’re doing something wrong," says Kasper Lindgaard, senior director of Secunia Research at Flexera Software, in a statement. "This time, we even had a warning in April that this could very likely happen, so businesses need to wake up and start taking these types of threats and risks seriously. There is simply no excuse."
