Counting Down the Security Top 10

Symantec just released its annual list of the year's top 10 security concerns, and while it's clearly not as funny as David Letterman's nightly list, for IT the Symantec list is far more useful.

Things you probably need to think about include securing virtual machines, figuring out what to do about Vista and dealing with an increasing barrage of virus-laden spam.

One big issue is the commercialization of hacking. There are more and more "hacking kits" for sale, and one company is even selling vulnerabilities to the highest bidder. Sick.
