Hacking to change tack in 2006

Mobile devices, Cisco routers, Oracle software, VoIP and Windows Vista : businesses can expect all these and more to become hacker targets in the next year and beyond, according to Symantec.

Symantec thinks one of the biggest developments will be attacks and attempts on alternative devices and platforms. As networked and user devices gain more intelligence and more computing power, they may become targets. "We're seeing a shift in emphasis over to non-PCs: your router, your switch, your back-up device," Cole says. "It's like whack-a-mole. You hit one and another pops up. We've now got to make sure the entire infrastructure is protected."
