Forbes "Shopping For Zero-Days: A Price List For Hackers' Secret Software Exploits"

I heard about this Forbes article a while ago, but finally got around to looking it up, seems like Hackers can make a lot of money by selling exploits to the top bidder.

Of more interest to me, is the price chart for hacks, that provides a very good picture of the relative security of the respective software.

Note that iOS is the most secure, while Mac OS is just a little better than Adobe, and Adobe is the least secure, based on those prices.

And Android is just as bad as Mac OS.

Some food for thought, specially if you do online banking IMO.
