Firefox was the application that had the most reported vulnerabilities this year, while holes in Adobe software more than tripled from a year ago, according to statistics compiled by Qualys, a vulnerability management provider.

Qualys tallied 102 vulnerabilities that were found in Firefox this year, up from 90 last year. The numbers are based on running totals in the National Vulnerability Database.

Thank you Animal for the info. IMHO Firefox is being hit for the same reason M/S systems are hit. M/S is big and Firefox is getting big. My question is; what do us folks out here do about it. The only thing that I can do as I see it is watch what you are doing and keep your security up to date.

It should be noted that these are disclosed vulnerabilities, simply because a program doesn't top a list such as this doesn't mean that it's necessarily better.
