Appreciate the comment. The 2% refers to "observed exploitation events" related to those vulnerabilities. It appears that you're referring to "has an exploit published." (additional background can be found in the Data Sources section of the full report)

Iot Threats
Great post Charlie, and certainly an area of concern for enterprises of all sizes. There clearly aren't enough protocols in place for security breaches at this early stage, when so many devices and everyday tools are connected. Staff sign-in badges, building elevators and so much more are now online - and no doubt require great risk assessment. Encyrption will become essential for any connected device, and maybe ethical hacking / penetration testing... which begs the question; is it worth connecting them in the first place, when the potential loss through breach far outweighs the marginal gains?
