Apple, Microsoft top vulnerability ranking

Top Three with most number of reported vulnerability per year. Apple took the first place, followed by Oracle and Microsoft. Other vendors in top 10 Vmware, Cisco, Mozilla and ever Google.
 Security firm Secunia has just released its Half Year Security Report (.pdf), which I downloaded to examine further.

And guess which vendors took the top three spots with the most number of reported vulnerabilities per year?
Apple (NASDAQ: AAPL) took the first place, followed by Oracle (NASDAQ: ORCL) and Microsoft (NASDAQ: MSFT). Other vendors in the top 10 list include Adobe (NASDAQ: ADBE) Systems (no surprise on this I suppose), VMware, Cisco (NASDAQ: CSCO), Mozilla and even Google (NASDAQ: GOOG).
