Blog: Video: Next Year in the Threat Webscape – Websense Security Labs Predictions for 2010

December 9, 2009

Watch the video overview of the threats expected to increase during the next year and security trends to watch for in 2010. This video covers the following emerging security exploits and 2010 security predictions from Websense Security Labs:

· Interesting new trends in Web 2.0 and real-time search exploits

· Increased attacks on smartphone, Mac and Microsoft 7 platforms

· Changes to the ways that botnets operate, including new aggressive behavior

· New sophistication in email and blended attacks

Overall, the trends and predictions for 2010 show a blending of security threats across multiple attack vectors for the purpose of roping computers into bot networks and stealing valuable confidential information -- demonstrating the need for businesses to have a unified content security architecture to protect against blended threats of Web, email and data security challenges.

Thanks for the info :D As normal, the security industry is playing catch-up to these vermin. Each year we see either new trends or an increase in where/what and how they hit us.

Yeah, that's the sad part about it :( Maybe one day the penalties will be so harsh the prospects will not make it worthwhile. We can all dream ;)
