Why Security Vulnerabilities Are Important

Without making this a "Security Blog" - of which there are plenty of good ones - I do post notifications about serious vulnerabilities pretty regularly (and highlight some on the "Security Buzz" list on the left). The reason is that the Bad Guys who exploit these things are pretty organized; there is big money to be made is stealing our data and selling it off to others. When a "zero-day" exploit sees the light of day for example, the currently available malware "kits" are quickly updated to incorporate it. Yes, the Bad Guys can purchase software kits with which to run their attacks. Therefore it behooves us to at least try to keep up with software and security updates as best we can.
