For Hackers, 2011 Looks Like A Prosperous New Year

If you're an attacker, the new year is a target-rich environment. Here are five areas where you should shore up your defenses

In life, it's said, there are a few things that are certain. April will bring the tax bill; July will bring the fireworks; September will bring the school bus. And if you're an editor at an IT security publication, there's one more: December will bring cyberthreat predictions for the new year.

1. Social networks will be a chief target for new exploits.

2. When they aren't targeting social networks, the bad guys will be after your mobile device.

3. Malware will become more complex, combining multiple exploits and attack techniques.

4. The exposure of sensitive information via WikiLeaks will shine a new light on the potential for insider data leaks.

5. Politics will join money as a key motivator for attacks in 2011.
