The Top Ten Security Threats for 2008 (Part 13) – Summary

I have now posted eight out of the top ten cybersecurity security threats for 2008, still unordered.    Here is what we have so far:

   — Cyber masquerading to abuse, attack, blackmail, bully, extort, or molest.

   — Password and identity theft from phishing, spyware, malware and theft of hardware.

   — Criminal use of botnets and botnet-like technologies.

   — Cyberbullying, cyberterrorism and other forms of electronic violence.

   — Subversion of democratic political processes.

   — Criminal manipulation and subversion of financial markets.

   — Spying by governments, industry and criminals.

   — Denial-of-service attacks.

 Eight threats down, two to go.    Your comments and suggestions are welcome!
