From Menlo Security:
Think this week’s Internet Explorer zero-day news is irrelevant since everyone is using Chrome anyway? Turns out you may want to think again, according to new data released today.
Menlo Security found of 386,185,926 browsing sessions conducted over the company’s user base over the past month, 35% (135,666,472) were on Internet Explorer. Even more concerning, IE11, one of the affected versions, was the most popular, with some customers using versions as far back as IE5.
For context, Menlo Security protects hundreds of organizations (including Macy’s and Fujitsu) from cyber attacks by eliminating the threat of malware from the web, documents and email. Menlo Security’s global cloud is protecting millions of end users, isolating over 500 million websites per day.
