The six most dangerous infosec attacks – Hackers – SC Magazine Australia – Secure Business Intelligence.

SC Magazine Autralia summarized Ed Skoudis’s and Joannes Ullrich’s RSA presentation on the six most dangerous IT Security threats of 2011 and what to expect in the year ahead. They are:

  1. DNS as command-and-control
  2. SSL slapped down
  3. Mobile malware as a network infection vector
  4. Hacktivism is back
  5. SCADA at home
  6. Cloud Security
Additional trends:
  • IPv6
  • Oldies
  • Social Networking
  • Malware
  • DNSSEC
The reference to the Malware item above is that blacklisting is a losing proposition and organizations need to move to whitelisting. IMHO, this especially true for establishing positive network control at the application level.
