That's an odd conclusion to draw from the report. What it actually says is:

1. Number of vulnerabilities in IE remains constant from 2013 to 2014, other applications see a decrease
2. Number of public exploits in IE decreases from 11 to 3 in that same period
3. Number of days to patch in IE decreases from ~80 to ~5 between IE7 and IE 11

Any tech movie that goes beyond the usual teletype interface with accompanying telex sounds, and doesn't have the full-screen blinking access granted/access denied message is already quite an accomplishment. And if those movies showed actual source code and not, say, a directory listing in a command window, even better. Bonus points if that code is genuine and has some kind of easter egg.

Computers are unreliable, but humans are even more unreliable. Any system which depends on human reliability is unreliable. -- Gilb
