23.Tablet Connections

A common misconception is that open-source software is less secure than proprietary software. To help dispel this myth, we'll highlight the benefits of open-source software in terms of security and show that the trust placed in the open-source community is well-founded. Currently, ninety percent of known exploited vulnerabilities are found in proprietary software, even though around 97% of all software is open-source. It's time to debunk the myth that open-source development is less secure than proprietary development!
