A banner year for security bugs

It isn't over yet, but 2006 is already a record year when it comes to security vulnerabilities.

There is, however, a silver lining: A smaller chunk of the flaws are high risk. Last year, researchers at Internet Security Systems identified 5,195 vulnerabilities in software. On Monday, the count for this year stood at 5,450, according to the Atlanta-based company's survey, and the projected total for the whole of the year is almost 7,500 bugs.
