No such thing as safe browsing

Nearly half of all websites pose security risks

According to a new study of the top one million domains, 46 percent are running vulnerable software, are known phishing sites, or have had a security breach in the past twelve months.

The big problem is that even when a website is managed by a careful company, it will often load content from other sites, said Kowsik Guruswamy, CTO at Menlo Park, Calif.-based Menlo Security, which sponsored the report, which was released this morning.

Half of the Web is Vulnerable to Malware

Menlo Security Releases State of The Web 2016 Illuminating Widespread Vulnerability

MENLO PARK, Calif. Dec. 13, 2016 – Menlo Security, a pioneer of malware isolation, today announced the availability of its State of The Web 2016 report. The surprising results reveal that nearly half (46%) of the Internet’s top 1 million web sites, as ranked by Alexa, are risky.  This is largely due to vulnerable software running on web servers and on underlying ad network domains. The results are significant because risky sites have never been easier to exploit, and traditional security products fail to provide adequate protection. Attackers have their veritable choice of half the web to exploit, allowing them to launch phishing attacks from legitimate sites.
