If patching and security updates are the soul of device security, then mobile users are in a world of hurt. Research from Skycure has revealed that 71% of mobile devices still run on security patches that are more than two months old, in part because the carriers are slow to make them available to users.

The firm’s fourth-quarter report analyzed the patch updates among the five leading wireless carriers in the United States. It found that more than one-third of devices had patches more than three months old, and a small percentage of end users are in really bad shape: About 6% of devices run patches that are six or more months old.
