“In 2013… 77% of legitimate websites had exploitable vulnerabilities” – Symantec
Threats exist everywhere online. A recent report by the Symantec Corporation estimated that 77% of legitimate web sites have vulnerabilities. That means that hackers can plant malicious software on those sites. When you innocently browse them, that software gets downloaded to your computer. You may never know when your computer has been taken over by a bot that is under the control of a criminal who may be thousands of miles away on a different continent.
- 1 in 566 sites will attempt to download malware when browsed
