    Almost half the online population is at risk because users have not installed security updates to their browsers according to a recent study.
    The Swiss Institute of Technology, Google and IBM conducted the study and found 600 million users had not updated their browsers, this makes them vulnerable to attacks that target browsers, most up to date browsers can cope with such attacks but older browsers cannot cope with.

    I would bet that 600M is a conservative number, and that it is actually way more. Half the IE users have yet to upgrade to IE7, and they are about to officially release IE8.
