Whenever a new year rolls around, I always like to check out the "best of" lists for the previous year. Trend Labs (the maker of HouseCall online scanner and HiJackThis) have released their list of the most dangerous tech of 2010.
Notables making the list:
- Website: Google (primarily due to advertising malware exploits)
- OS: Mac OSX
- Social Networking Site: Facebook (this shouldn’t be a surprise)
- Web Software: WordPress (due to it’s popularity, it is the biggest target)
- File Format: PDF (not really a surprise, most can be attributed to Adobe Reader exploits)
This is a pretty interesting list and each has an explanation of following it. Do you agree with this or do you have something else to add?
