Re: Is this a trend?
@mejiac, I think you are right on all points. Hackers are getting smarter, current, tried-and-true security technology is much less effective, and the Internet is more pervasive in our daily lives. It's a perfect storm!

Is this a trend?
Excellent Article

"The growing number of attacks on our cyber security networks remains a serious economic and national security issue."

As you clearly point out, there is a trend, and it something that bares the question who's holding the ball?

Either those that perform hacks are getting smarter (and the security companies are playing catch up)? Or the current set of security protocols has become obsolete?

One thing is different from, lets say, 5 years ago...people are more online than ever before, and cloud solutions have risen as a viable option for any and all businesses.

So perhaps this has led to many identifying exploits that can be easilly replicated across many platforms.

What those the community think?
