IE exploits top web security threat list
Internet Explorer exploits posed the fastest growing web security threat to enterprises in the last quarter, according to web security services firm ScanSafe. The top exploit (Exploit.HTML.Mht) was used to attack twice as many businesses as any other web security threat in Q2 2004.
While Trojans and worms remain the most significant type of threat, exploits, which accounted for 19 per cent of all attacks recorded by ScanSafe, are growing in prevalence.
