Cybercrime meltdown

Date: April 11, 2007

Research from McAfee's Avert Labs predicts a nightmare future of more sophisticated cybercrime and the development of further technological means to carry out external attacks.

According to McAfee, gangs of thieves around the globe are connecting online in greater volumes than ever before, helping their attacks to hit faster, in greater volumes and with increasing sophistication.

McAfee's Sage journal is a round-up of the company's ongoing security research. It predicts that everything from spam to spyware will become more dangerous over the course of 2007. The report predicts that hackers will look for fresh ways to exploit for cash consumers' PC.

According to McAfee experts, the drive for profits among hackers and malware code writers will dominate development of the threat landscape over the next 12 months. This is a continuation of the situation in 2006.
