Vista Vulnerability Report

Security professional Jeff Jones published a Windows Vista security report for vulnerabilities between Nov. 2006 to Nov. 2007. It also does a side by side comparison with Windows XP, RedHat and Ubuntu Linux and MacOS 10.4.

It looks like the Microsoft security features, tools and approach are finally starting to pay off.

Jeff Jones was also the author of the (somewhat controversial) Internet Explorer versus Firefox report.

Anyway, before you start criticizing, look at the quoted sources (secunia, NIST, securityfocus, securitytracker, ubuntu security notices, rhel security notices, ms security bulletins, etc). The man has a point.
