What’s The Most Vulnerable Web Browser? Internet Explorer

By | February 23, 2015

Most Vulnerable Web Browser Is Internet ExplorerApple tops the OS chart.

In the recently published study by GFI, which took a database of vulnerabilities that were published in 2014 and created a chart that makes sense, it looks like Microsoft‘s Internet Explorer still has a long way to go until it‘s no longer the most vulnerable web browser out there.

As you can see in the chart below, the top application by vulnerabilities reported in 2014 was indeed Internet Explorer (242), followed by Google Chrome (124) and Firefox (117).

What we are waiting for however is this and next year‘s chart just to see if or by how much the security of Spartan has been improved by the removal of legay code that IE still has. Any guesses if Chrome will become the #1 when it comes to a number of vulnerabilities?
