Month of Kernel Bugs
Thursday 30th November, 2006 16:46 Comments: 0
So a month has gone by, and what conclusions can I make? It seems that Microsoft have done pretty well, OSX has a few issues, Linux has a few more, and wireless drivers aren't too hot either. Assuming I can count (a big assumption):

Kernel Fun

Linux: 11
Apple: 9
Third party wireless drivers: 5 (although there are meant to be many outstanding Netgear vulnerabilities too)
Microsoft: 1 (although it doesn't apply to 2003 or Vista)

Either all the researchers have switched to looking for OSX and Linux vulnerabilities, or Microsoft have done a pretty good job at protecting the kernel in recent years. Or both.

EDIT: It seems I posted too soon, I had missed that the last bug hadn't been revealed (the totals above have been updated accordingly).
