Last week I posted comments about several misuses of the word "threat" in the latest SANS twenty most critical Internet security vulnerabilities. After receiving an email from Alan Paller, I returned to the SANS site and saw many of my recommended changes were made. For example, you can now "Jump To Index of Top 20 Vulnerabilities", instead of "threats." I appreciate SANS taking my suggestions to heart.
Update: It's becoming clear where the confusion regarding "threat" vs "vulnerability" originates for the SANS Top 20. One of you pointed me towards the article Mac OS X Under Scrutiny. See how many misuses of the term threat you can find. Here's a freebie:
"SANS's Dhamankar stressed that the intent was not to call the Mac OS X operating system a threat, but to give Mac users a wake up call."
