Outdated OSs Still Present in Many Industrial Organizations: Report
Systems running outdated Windows versions are present on 62% of industrial networks, although that number is 71% if Windows 7 is taken into account, a new report by CyberX shows. Microsoft will stop supporting Windows 7 in January of next year.
Suspicious activity was detected on 22% of networks. Examples of such activity are malware, scans, and abnormal HTTP headers. The majority of networks had remote connection services like RDP, SSH or VNC running on certain devices, while 27% of networks contained devices that were directly accessible from the Internet.
