Study: 70% Of Web Sites Are Hackable


About 70% of Web sites contain vulnerabilities that put them at risk of being hacked, according to a new study issued on Tuesday.

A year ago, Acunetix, a Web site security company, began scanning sites, both business and nonbusiness, looking for vulnerabilities. Out of 3,200 sites scanned, 70% had vulnerabilities with either a medium- or high-risk rating, according to an Acunetix announcement. Company analysts say there is an "extremely high probability" of hackers finding and using the vulnerabilities to steal information. Study: 70% Of Web Sites Are Hackable - News by InformationWeek
