I first saw this on Network World: http://www.networkworld.com/community/node/30229?t51hb&nlhtsec=mr_072408&nladname=072408securityal <http://www.networkworld.com/community/node/30229?t51hb&nlhtsec=mr_072408&nladname=072408securityal>
where it states: "Like with a lot of research, the results take a while to emerge. In this case, the researchers took a look at web sites from 214 financial institutions back in 2006."
The results took awhile to emerge? 2 years? I found this article to be security fear mongers trying to get some backing for more research. Does anyone still think that 214 financial institutions haven't changed their security in 2 years? Or that their websites are still the same as they were back then?
I think someone got some grant money to conduct the research and was finally forced to cough up the results. Even 2 years later.
