2016 has not only being bad for huawei. Indeed Google’s OS, Android is actually suffering from a bad reputation. The famous OS is the top most vulnerable operating system of the year.
According to CVE, (Common Vulnerabilities and Exposure) Android has been the most vulnerable software to security breaks of the year. Indeed, it account for up to 523 vulnerabilities. This makes 60% more than the second in the ranking which is Debian, one of the most famous Linux distribution.
Android’s direct competitor, Apple only account for 161 vulnerabilities. This is 3 times less than Android and is the 15th of the ranking (a rank that puts it in a good position). Looking at the desktop OS, Mac OS X is the 11th of the ranking with 215 vulnerabilities, Windows 10 is the 13th with 172 vulnerabilities followed by Chrome OS with the same number of vulnerabilities. Therefore Windows 10 and Chrome are more secured than Mac OS X here.(I could have already seen the Apple afficianados coming ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°) )
4X More v+Vulnerabilities for Android Compare to 2015
Looking at the graph above, we realize that 2016 has been really, really bad for Android compare to the previous years. The OS accounted for 125 vulnerabilities. These ones have therefore multiplied by 4 in just one year and by 40 in just 2 years. This is really incredible.
Although Google’s delivers monthly security updates, it does not seem that the situation will improve very soon.
