Default Over 5,000 bugs in 2005

The end of an old year and beginning of a new one is always a favorite time to compile lists. One such compendium comes from the US-CERT, the US Computer Emergency Readiness Team, which has come up with a list of 5,198 software bugs that were discovered during 2005, a 38 percent increase from 2004. The bugs ran the gamut from A (Aaron Outpost ASP inline Corporate Calendar Permits Remote SQL Injection on Windows OSes) to Z (the multiplatform Zyxel Prestige 650R-31 Router Remote Denial of Service).

Looking at the numbers, 812 of the flaws were found on Windows and 2,328 were specific to *NIX (including Linux, Unix, and Mac OS X). The other 2,058 bugs affected multiple operating systems, such as the Macromedia Flash Array Index Remote Arbitrary Code Execution vulnerability. That one affected users of Linux, Windows, Solaris, and Mac OS X.
