Study Reveals That 40% Users Surf With Unpatched Web Browsers

A collaborative study between IBM, the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology and Google has revealed that approximately 41 percent of users are still not bothered about the browser security updates.

The analysis was performed by the group utilizing the user information available on the Google database.

The main focus of the analysis was to find out how often browser patches are applied by the end-users.

As per the reports, approximately 83.3% of the Firefox were found to have installed the latest version of web software and this is because Mozilla offers the most quickest and painless patch process so far.
