Microsoft Updates vs 3rd Party Patches

Are you patching Adobe Reader, Java, browser plugins,...enough frequently?

Today vulnerabilities detected in 3rd party (non-microsoft) applications represent more than 80% or the total number of applications, whereas Microsoft applications contain less than 20%.

SANS reports:

"Priority One: Client-side software that remains unpatched."

"Waves of targeted email attacks, often called spear phishing, are exploiting client-side vulnerabilities in commonly used programs such as Adobe PDF Reader, QuickTime, Adobe Flash and Microsoft Office. This is currently the primary initial infection vector used to compromise computers that have Internet access".

GARTNER states:

"Deployment of non-Microsoft patches is often significantly slower and less organized. All Internet-based applications, especially browsers and browser plug-ins (i.e., Adobe and Apple QuickTime), should be a top patching priority."
