Open-Source Software Flaws

While software vulnerabilities do exist in software other than produced by Microsoft, it’s rare that they make the news. Security experts find open-source flaws reports that researchers have found possible problems with two major open-source software products.

“The latest flaws add to the debate over which is more secure — commercial software, such as that from Microsoft, or open-source software, such as Linux.

‘In any given year there have been just as many vulnerabilities in the open-source community as there have been with Microsoft,’ Ingevaldson said.”
