Great news. Patch load drops 20% for the first time in 10 years. Bad news: Well, you've heard about coronavirus?

How many software companies have been laying people off?

Ah, quite a few. In fact, a lot of tech cos have used the pandemic as an excuse to offload staff, blaming the economic uncertainty.

There's also the drop in productivity as people work from home for the first time, and in stressful circumstances - not just world events, but also things like childcare.

It appears to have had an effect on the number of bug advisories.
