There's nothing anywhere close to being a reliable data collection to answer questions like these. People tend to base these things on CVE counts, which is the Infosec equivalent of astrology or homeopathy. Yet that doesn't stop universities and other "respectably looking" institutions to fall for this trap on a regular basis. -- Hanno Böck https://hboeck.de/ mail/jabber: hanno@...eck.de GPG: FE73757FA60E4E21B937579FA5880072BBB51E42
