Microsoft Breaks Patch Records

By Gregg Keizer, TechWeb

Microsoft has patched almost as many critical vulnerabilities in the first 8 months of 2006 as it did in 2004 and 2005 combined, security researchers said Wednesday.

"2006 already is a record year," said Jonathan Bitle, product manager with security company Qualys. "It's great that we're finding them prior to large-scale attacks, but at the same time it's a concern about the quality of [Microsoft's] code."

Thus far this year, there have been 51 security bulletins and 98 patches, 64 of which were deemed critical.

Yet we remain on the shore of what we know."
