Majority of websites have serious, unfixed vulnerabilities
In a recent analysis of more than 30,000 websites, most had at least one serious vulnerability for 150 or more days last year.
“These are the vulnerabilities that can get you into trouble,” said Jeremiah Grossman, founder at WhiteHat Security, the company behind the report. “They can compromise some or all of your systems, get user data, or take over accounts.”
These are the kinds of vulnerabilities that need to be fixed quickly, before they make news headlines, he added.
