ESET researchers have published a report on major trends in Windows exploitation and mitigation in 2014 on its security news page WeLiveSecurity.com.
The list of most frequently targeted Microsoft Windows components is topped by Internet Explorer, which has almost double the number of exploit attacks compared to last year.
”This year was especially hard on users of the Internet Explorer browser, as Microsoft addressed twice as many vulnerabilities as in 2013,“ reads in the blog post on WeLiveSecurity.com. “Fortunately for its users, a great number of these vulnerabilities were patched during the same year.”
