Link: VNUNET Looks at 2005
VNUNet’s 5 predictions for the coming year in security
1. Signature-based antivirus software is finished
2. Spam rates will regularly hit 90 per cent of all emails
3. Cyber-terrorists will remain mythical
4. No Longhorn in 2005
5. No security, no connection
For the full article see the vnunet link above. All in all looks like a pretty safe list to me. The last item I can only hope will happen. Endpoint compliant where users are denied access until they are proven secure (or proven to meet certain requirements like antivirus). The first item, I have to wonder what the solution will be. I don’t think HIPS is ready for prime time, and I don’t think heuristics as currently deployed are the solution either.
