This is due to an incorrect translation in the Greek version.

It looks like you're using an insecure version of %s. Using an outdated browser makes your computer unsafe. For the best WordPress experience, please update your browser.

Has been translated into Greek as

Φαίνεται ότι χρησιμοποιείτε μια μη ασφαλή έκδοση του <a href='%s'>%s</a>. Η χρήση παρωχημένων πλοηγών καθιστά μη ασφαλή τη χρήση του υπολογιστή σας. Για να απολαμβάνετε καλύτερα το WordPress, παρακαλούμε αναβαθμίστε τον πλοηγό σας.

As you can see, the translation contains one more instance of %s than the source string.

Thanks for your report. Since this is not a bug in WordPress core, I'll close this ticket, but I'll write a notice at for the Greek translation editors to correct this.

If you know Greek well, then you yourself may suggest a correct translation at
