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.
