The third category, however, is critical to your security.When a software developer creates an app, he or she is thinking of all the cool functionality they can put in there to enrich your life. What they are often not thinking of is how a hacker or some other devious group could exploit a weakness in that app to either harvest private information about you, trick you into giving up that information, or worse, install malware onto your device. These kinds of security holes are a huge headache and a nightmare for the software developer. In fact, many of the big names in tech—Microsoft, Google, Oracle, Facebook, et al.—offer a “bug bounty,’ in other words a reward for people who find these security issues and report them, preferably without exploiting them first. The worst kind of security flaw is what’s known as a “zero-day exploit,” which is a security flaw that’s in the wild and being used to break into devices, but the software developer hasn’t released a fix for it yet. That leaves all of their customers wide open for attack. Not a good thing. Savvy software developers make closing security vulnerabilities in their software a number one priority. And that’s why they are constantly sending out those pesky updates you love so much.
