Data from Security Fix shows it takes Apple 91 days on average to patch serious flaws in its products after being notified. Microsoft is even slower.
Over the past several months, Security Fix published data showing how long it took Microsoft and Mozilla to issue updates for security flaws. Today, I'd like to present some data I compiled that looks at Apple's performance on this front.
Here's what I found: Over the past two years, after being notified about serious security flaws in its products, it took Apple about 91 days on average to issue patches to correct those vulnerabilities. I also found that almost without exception, open-source Linux vendors were months ahead of Apple in fixing the same flaws.
