On this report 94.86% of the results obtained are due to five categories of vulnerabilities: data leaks in metadata (49.40%), information management errors (24.84%), configuration errors (9.17%), inadequate validation of input data (7.44%) and cryptographic problems (4.01%). These five categories represent 8.36% more than the first semester report.
These are some of the conclusions reached from the research:
- Some 87.01% of detected vulnerabilities indicate that the vast majority of failures are to be found in the configuration of equipment and systems.
- Of close to the total number of detected vulnerabilities, about 70% are related to SSL, either due to protocol versions with weak encryption or weak certificates.
- In the geographic areas of both LATAM and EMEA, data leaks in metadata are predominant (55.57% and 37.32%, respectively). However, configuration errors were predominant in the first semester for the EMEA area.
