Adobe Flash Player was the most insecure program installed on UK computer users PCs throughout the second quarter of 2014, according to stats from vulnerability management firm Secunia.
Nearly seven in 10 (69 per cent) UK PC users were found to have an end-of-life version of Adobe Flash Player 13 installed during Q2 2014. Users had not updated to version 14.
The report reveals that Microsoft XML Core Services 4 (MSXML) is another security weak spot.
Three out of four who use the Secunia PSI had Microsoft XML Core Services installed in Q2 2014. Within this large group, two in five (40 per cent) had not patched the program, even though a patch is available.
