Threats in Plain Sight: Bit9 Identifies ?The Dirty Dozen? - 2008?s Most Popular Applications with Critical Security Vulnerabilities

Reputable programs found vulnerable; Security gaps often left unaddressed


12.11.2008 - Waltham, MA - Bit9, Inc., the pioneer and leader in Enterprise Application Whitelisting, unveiled its annual ranking of popular consumer applications with known security vulnerabilities. Often running outside of the IT department?s knowledge or control, these applications can be difficult to detect; they create data leakage risk in endpoints that are otherwise secure; and cause compliance breaches that can result in costly fines. The list, published in a research brief entitled ?2008?s Popular Applications with Critical Vulnerabilities,? is designed to highlight the need for greater visibility and control over organizations? endpoints, including laptops, PCs servers and Point-of-Sale systems.
