Click through for the top five vulnerabilities attackers use against browsers and ways you can minimize your chances of being a victim of these attacks, as identified by Quarri Technologies, Inc.

Web browsers are the primary target for many attackers these days, because so much sensitive data passes through them. From casual shopping to enterprise management systems to military operations, browsers have become the primary vehicle people use to access network-connected systems. Unfortunately, browsers have a long and storied history of vulnerabilities that have provided attackers with a lucrative and near-endless supply of victims upon which to prey. Quarri Technologies, Inc., a Web information security software company, has identified some of the top vulnerabilities attackers use against browsers.

Note: This slideshow is focused on browser vulnerabilities, not website vulnerabilities (SQL injection attacks, XSS, XSRF, et al). The distinction is subtle but important.
