A Nasty Thought

Here's a nasty thought with which to finish 2006 or start 2007.

Gartner are claiming the arrival of automated malware-generation kits which facilitate the creation of thousands of nasty viral variants, will lead to increased attacks on businesses. Researchers estimate by the end of next year 75 per cent of enterprises will be infected with undetected, financially motivated, and targeted malware that can evade firms' traditional perimeter and host defenses.

Perhaps we should just give up and hand the keys to the criminals? Sometimes it seems like the only solution in a war that is far from being won!
