Jeremiah Grossman’s team at WhiteHat Security has released an eyebrow raising report, the Website Security Statistics Report, on web site vulnerabilities. Over the next few weeks, we’re going to take a deep dive into that report and get some feedback from the team at WhiteHat to see what you can do to batten down the hatches on your site.
I called Jeremiah Grossman immediately after seeing the results of the WhiteHat Security report. 81% of web sites analyzed have serious vulnerabilities. That had to be a misprint.
Not according to Jeremiah, CTO of WhiteHat Security. In fact, he insisted several times that many security experts consider that number low. Not only that, the estimated time to fix those security holes is 107 days, over three months.
In our interview, we cover more about Jeremiah’s research and what he is doing to help people recognize the risk. You can download the full report from the WhiteHat Security site, but first, take a listen to the interview; you might want to be sitting down.
