And the another 19% are either lying or don't know the difference?
I'm particularly interested in this stat:

"28% fail to install Web-based security software"

Considering the success of a lot of faux antivirus software packages that are really malware, I suspect that number is potentially a lot higher. People think they're protected, and they're not.

I'd be interested, incidentally, to see the split between Mac users and non-Mac users -- considering the very false marketing propaganda of "Macs don't get viruses."

No surprise
Most Americans - and that includes MANAGEMENT for that matter - have zero idea of cyber-security risks and how to be infected.  Searching from THE GREAT GOD GOOGLE is always safe, right?   And yet bitcoin mining apps can run in the background of Yahoo without anybody knowing it.  True.  The belief that all attached PDF files are somehow safe? That seems still around (see State of North Carolina).  So while people admit to know knowing good behavior, they don't even know what bad behavior is.

How Machine Learning, AI & Deep Learning Improve Cybersecurity
Machine intelligence is influencing all aspects of cybersecurity. Organizations are implementing AI-based security to analyze event data using ML models that identify attack patterns and increase automation. Before security teams can take advantage of AI and ML tools, they need to know what is possible. This report covers: -How to assess the vendor's AI/ML claims -Defining success criteria for AI/ML implementations -Challenges when implementing AI

CodeIgniter is a PHP full-stack web framework. In versions prior to 4.2.7 setting `$secure` or `$httponly` value to `true` in `Config\Cookie` is not reflected in `set_cookie()` or `Response::setCookie()`. As a result cookie values are erroneously exposed to scripts. It should be noted that this vuln...
