ISSE: Emerging security threats challenge businesses

Hackers and cybercrime gangs are increasingly targeting smart phones, Macintosh computers and other “emerging” platforms, delegates to Europe’s largest independent security conference have been warned.

Speaking at this year’s ISSE conference in Warsaw, Costin Raiu, head of research and development at anti-virus vendor Kaspersky Labs, said that security improvements in Windows Vista were making it harder for cyber-crime gangs to target PCs. At the same time, the growing popularity of alternative platforms, such as Mac OS and the Symbian mobile OS were bound to attract growing attention from hackers.
