Re: 2013 predictions...

Mobile attacks and phishing will certainly be more via SMS texting than anything else I feel.

Everyone reads all their texts, and folks are much more likely to follow a link within a text message than through an 
email message...  It's an easy attack vector....

Hi all,

I just hope that I'm not already too late to be the fiirst person to

Mobile offers homogeneous targets, but also targets which can be fixed,
overnight, by vendors with deep pockets.

I predict more-of-the-same for 2013, but with a more litigious slant. As
attacks are ever more directed and focused in nature, users will start to
view their vendors as culpable.
