AVG has released its security threats predictions for the new year, and the sophisticated attacks that defined 2013 look to continue.
Cybercriminals will increasingly use ransomware, malware and hacktivism over the next year to move further into the lucrative business market.
No longer content to remain the victim, some organisations are starting to take a more offensive approach to security attacks.
The security space may have been abuzz with activity in 2013, though Blue Coat Systems product marketing director, Jonathan Andresen, said it essentially was the same trends recycled with some adjustments.
Just when it seemed 2013 might end without any major security attacks, the CryptoLocker malware has surfaced and begun creating havoc.
Trending cyber attacks such as ransomware may be typically overlooked by SMBs, but Lumension chairman and CEO, Pat Clawson, warns that they are actually in the line of fire.
Such ransomware has been used against PCs for years, but is unique on mobile devices, Symantec says
The first fake antivirus app intended to victimize Android users has been spotted by Symantec, which says this fake A/V app can also act like ransomware to hold the victim's Android device hostage.
