An aging Internet…

In an interesting post from Ars, we read about the dangers of an aging Internet. With over 640,000,000 websites on the internet it is not a great leap to think that many of these sites are running on older, vulnerable software with little chance of being upgraded. I would even guess that many of these sites aren’t even managed anymore, so that if they were compromised there would be no one to notice the intrusion. It’s a good thing our ATMs aren’t running old software or operating systems that can be easily compromised. Then we might really be in trouble.
