Number of Malware-Infected Sites Has Doubled Since Last Year, Study Says
Dasient's somber announcement comes on the heels of a report released this week from WhiteHat Security, which examined the security of some 3,000 sites across 400 organizations. WhiteHat found that a full 44-percent of those sites suffered from serious vulnerabilities at all times, and that 26-percent were frequently vulnerable during an average of at least 270 days per year. Just 16-percent were deemed secure at all times.
The bottom line, then, is that the Internet is a scary, dangerous place. So be careful out there.
