TechCrunch, the “leading technology media property, dedicated to obsessively profiling startups, reviewing new Internet products, and breaking tech news” has been discussing Microsoft’s plans to automatically upgrade Windows customers to the latest version of Internet Explorer in 2012.

According to Sarah Perez, TechCrunch writer, “This was one of the most important things Microsoft could have done for the web, web security and the safety of all those who go online.” According to reports, 99% of all attacks came from known, unpatched vulnerabilities and/or social engineering.

Perez also draws on Secunia Advisories when referring to the “trouble” with older versions of web browsers, such as Internet Explorer.
