ANN ARBOR — Duo Security, the Ann Arbor-based security products and services provider, has announced new results from a survey, “Trusted Access Report: Microsoft Edition.”
And the findings were scary enough for Halloween. They included:
* Sixty-five percent of all Windows devices are still running Windows 7, which was released in 2009 and has about 600 known security vulnerabilities.
* Tens of thousand of devices are still running Windows XP, 15 years after its release. This represents more than 700 vulnerabilities, 200 of which are rated as high-to-critical.
* Twenty percent of devices running Internet Explorer are running unsupported versions 8, 9 and 10. IE versions 8 through 10 have reached end-of-life status without the ability to receive security patches, leaving them susceptible to old exploits.
