Privacy, Security, Encryption "Starting today, I plan on posting a monthly vulnerability scorecard for common server and workstation Operating System products. I'm going to keep these scorecards pretty clean of discussion, but you can review my methodology, sources and assumptions." Note that these results speak only of fixed vulnerabilities; the author aims to include information on non-fixed problems and the time it takes to fix problems as well. You should also read this, by the way.

Which is the same as the numbers I have for my gentoo installation ;)

However - you forget one thing. The FreeBSD advisories only handle a minimum of packages compared with advisories from Apple, Microsoft and Redhat. Redhat and Ubuntu count in Firefox vulnerabilities. FreeBSD do not despite the vulnerability being crossplatform and relevant for FreeBSD as well. It would be more correct to compare FreeBSD advisories with advisories for LFS and half of BLFS. It gives the same result btw. ;)
