Our guest was Patrick Martin, Senior Product Manager, Symantec Security Response Team.

Topic: Symantec just released the 8th Internet Security Threat Report, one of the most comprehensive sources of Internet threat data in the world. The semiannual report, covering the six-month period from January 1 to June 30, 2005, identified new methods of using malicious code for financial gain with increasing frequency to target desktops rather than enterprise perimeters. The report also found a rise in the exposure of confidential information. Such threats are more worrisome as online shopping and Internet banking continue to increase in popularity. Viruses, Spyware, Spam, Phishing are all up significantly... What can we expect the next 6 months to bring? What can we do to protect ourselves?
