Bleak 2008 Security Reports and Other Attacks

Both Google and CA came out with reports this week on cybercrime and threats predicted for 2008.

Both reports cited botnets and their resulting output of spam and malware as chief worries. But the CA report also cited social networks, Web 2.0 applications and Microsoft Vista as potential cybertargets. Google said malware, in general, was getting smarter and better at hooking people.

Google had its own worries with a tool that hits its Gmail service and there was more bad news for the security of handheld mobile devices.
