The influential SANS Institute will introduce its annual research this week outlining thinking on the latest threats...

to affect consumers, companies and governments.

The group’s results, based on case studies that it has actually seen or had reported rather than through surveys, usually serves as a warning to users about new vulnerabilities in systems and software that have emerged over the past year.

Last year, SANS caused a stir by reporting that instead of operating systems being an attraction for hackers, the threat had moved to utilities such as anti-virus or applications. It also explained how organised crime was now providing the critical impetus for an explosion in spyware and phishing attacks.

SANSs is expected to give details of how the ingenuity and sophistication of attacks has now reached a point where security specialists are struggling to keep up with the threats.
