THE FAST-CHANGING FACE OF CYBER CRIMES

A Symantec Internet Security Threat Report released in March
2006 affirms attackers have moved away from large, multipurpose attacks on
network perimeters towards smaller, more focused attacks on client-side
targets.

According to the report,12,13 which covered the
period from June to December 2005, there were 1,896 new vulnerabilities
recorded in the second half of 2005the highest recorded number since 1998.
There was also an average of 7.9 million phishing attempts per dayan increase
of 39 per cent over the first half of 2005.

Cyber criminals are now moving towards a combination or
blend of threats involving spyware, phishing and the like, as against single
threats which were predominant in the past (see Table 16.1). Phishing, however,
continues to be the primary threat. Anil Chakravarthy, Head (India Technical
Operations), Symantec says, Blended attacks are on the rise and it is
difficult to classify these attacks under any particular category. Says
Chakravarthy: We are preparing for a world where the risk is not to the
machine but to an extended environment that is the infrastructure, information
and transaction.14
