    Inprotect.com made available top 10 vulnerabilities and top 10 open tcp
    ports reports based on the results of the free security scans performed
    from it's site since October 2002.

    Reports are based on the results of tests performed using Nessus
    security scanner.
    Nessus scans were configured to test common tcp ports with all safe
    non-DOS checks enabled.
    Tests were performed over time with the 1.2.5 - 2.0.1 versions of Nessus
    security scanner.
    Since October 2002, 936 systems were tested 1192 times (some systems
    were tested more than once).
    Security scans results show that over 19,000 security vulnerabilities
    were found, or close to 16 vulnerabilities found per scan (these numbers
    include open ports).
    These reports may contain some false positive results, but it's
    impossible to determine number of false positives at this time.

    Top 10 vulnerabilities and open tcp ports reports are also available for
    the period of the last 30 days, which may show statistics on newly
    discovered vulnerabilities.
    The top 10 vulnerabilities reports are grouped by Nessus risk factor,
    CVE ID, CVE ID (candidates) and Bugtraq ID.

    The reports data may be useful for security professionals or for
    preparing researches on most common vulnerabilities.
