2. Web 2.0 services will become increasingly vulnerable to attack

Social networking providers are working hard to tighten security. But consumer demand is also driving them to introduce new services - with yet-to-be-discovered vulnerabilities. As social networks increase their professional services, the gap between services and security will continue to grow throughout 2010.

Blue Coat Systems has released a comprehensive list review of security for 2009, and included in the mix are its predictions for the biggest security threats for the coming year.

Among the more notable trends Blue Coat cites:

  • As e-mail continues to get more secure, the bad guys will shift increasingly to social media and even smartphones as their attack vectors of choice.
  • Multi-relay attacks will continue to grow in prevalence.
  • Mobile workers will still be the most vulnerable to attack.
