Lies, damned lies, statistics

OSNews posts Firefox vs. IE security: Is Two Greater Than Five?. “A recent blog post on ZDNet contends that Firefox is not as secure as promised by counting exploits. Joseph Huang contends that severity and the number of unpatched vulnerabilites matters, not just the number of exploits discovered.”

Lies, damned lies and statistics, indeed! Here’s Joseph’s portrayal:

IE FireFox
Extremely Critical 10 Zero
Highly Critical 20 3
Moderately Critical 14 4
Less / Not Critical 25 15
