Average website has 13 serious security holes..
« on: September 24, 2010, 03:01:15 PM »
Hi malware fighters,

The avarage IT-website has 24 vulnerabilities, big firm (25.000 workers and more) websites have most issues, banksites have an average of 5 vulnerabilities per site.
Cross-site scripting is the number one vulnerability, followed by data leakage and content spoofing, while SQL-injection holds on to position 5. (see image). Website owners can improve website security but only seem to do so after they have been hacked,
