Nine out of ten websites have serious vulnerabilities
Author: JT Smith
The report shows that nine out of ten websites have serious vulnerabilities that make them targets for malicious online attacks. Cross-site Scripting (XSS) remains the top vulnerability class, appearing in approximately three quarters of websites, while Information Leakage is the top vulnerability class of the overall population. New attack techniques such as XSS-phishing, Intranet Hacking and Web worms may force enterprises to re-evaluate the criticality of XSS on a case-by-case basis.
