Does the presence of Reduced User-Agents lead to the detection of outdated_browser findings?
Reduced User-Agents triggers 'Outdated Web Browser Observed'(outdated_browser) findings when the browser manifests as outdated.
The reduction in UA does not significantly impact our processes, as it does not alter the primary browser version, which suffices for our requirements. For information regarding the versions of outdated browsers, please refer https://support.securityscorecard.com/hc/en-us/articles/115003107566-Outdated-browsers-detected
The user agent string(User-Agents and User-Agent Client Hints) comprises data from client web browser requests, containing diverse details about the operating system and web browser type.
SecurityScorecard extract those from commercially available advertising technology data and analyzes the collected Reduced UA and UA-CH, enabling access to consistent information regarding the web browser version and other relevant details. If available, the scanned UA will be displayed.
The client-hints are utilized when accessible; in their absence, we rely exclusively on UA to determine the browser and its version.
