    Vulnerable to what? What kinds of products are you thinking about? Printers? Disk drives? OSs? Applications? -- Tom

    Seems like a homework question.

    Can you tell us what research you have already done and your business case for this?

    Then we may be able to critique it.

    A little more info please like Tom mentioned. Then try googling a few tech sites,consumer reviews and check out antivirus providers see who is their most frequent fix/patch for. Then again it could still be preferential info/data. Some sites may down play some stats to make another stat look good.

    Sorry.  Without clarification and more details, this question makes no sense.

    Vulnerable as a business? Vulnerable physically based on geographical location? Makers of vulnerable software and hardware? 

    How do you mean??

    What IBM and Samsung OSs were you looking at? The differences between various IBM OSs are extremely large. And Samsung really distributes only the Android OS. -- Tom

    But as first asked, vulnerable to what? Disk crashes? Virus infections? Buffer overflow in web application servers? SQL injection? Escalation of privileges? Session hijacks? Are you needing to know about vulnerabilities in default configurations vs. fully secured configurations?

    Nessus is a useful tool for many networking related vulnerabilities, and it seems like a reasonable start for you. You'll want to understand what it does. The more you learn about how it works, the more you'll see how large the scope of your question is.

    Run a Google search for [ vulnerability assessment tools ]. Look through the list to see which ones fit the system(s) that you will be working with. -- Tom

    Apologies, I missed your reply.

    Futher to my reply.

    You should look at "Penetration Testing Tools" that are both Opensource and "commercial".
