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.
