Media players and surprisingly, anti-virus software have been named in the latest top 20 list of applications that are in desperate need of upgrades to close security holes. Sans, the not for profit organisation that publishes the list has been speaking to the BBC:
"The number of vulnerabilities is fairly solid," said Gerhard Eschelbeck, chief technology officer at security firm Qualys and contributor to the Sans list. "What's changing is the fact that these vulnerabilities are being exploited faster."
The list includes many big names, such as iTunes, RealPlayer and McAfee.
