images/news/chrome.jpgChrome was the application with the highest number of severe vulnerabilities this year, followed by Safari, Microsoft Office, Adobe Reader and Acrobat, and Firefox, according to a list released on Tuesday.

Chrome had 76 reported serious vulnerabilities, Safari had 60, Office had 57, Acrobat and Reader had 54, and Firefox had 51, according to Bit9's annual 'Dirty Dozen' list.

The fact that Chrome is at the top of the list does not necessarily mean it is less secure than other applications, said Harry Sverdlove, chief technology officer at Bit9. "Chrome is the youngest of the browsers out there and is going through the most changes," he said. "It doesn't mean it's a risky browser."
