FBI lists 20 most dangerous Internet security holes

by platon on October 6th, 2001 The FBI has teamed up with the industry experts to formulate a list of the 20 most important Internet security vulnerabilities. Acting as a resource to show which security holes of common platforms should be prioritised, the list covers general vulnerabilities, as well as bugs specifically affecting Windows and Unix boxes.


A previous chart covered 10 vulnerabilities and the latest run-down expands and updates that list, which is now over a year old.



The rational for producing a check list is that system administrators have reported they had not corrected many known security flaws because they simply did not know which vulnerabilities were most dangerous, and were too busy to correct them all.



Vulnerability scanners search for up to 800 vulnerabilities "blunting the focus" of sys admins.
