The Flexera Software Country Reports tell you how much vulnerable software is present on private PCs in your country, plus a few extra, interesting facts
Why does it matter?
A vulnerable software program that isn't patched compromises the security of the PC. This is because it leaves the PC vulnerable to being exploited by hackers.
Vulnerabilities are discovered in software programs on a regular basis, and the vendor will release a patch for users to apply in the form of a security update. If users do not perform these updates, their PC will be vulnerable to attacks because hackers can use the vulnerability as an entry point.
