"when hackers are focusing on people more than ever"

Agree. It becomes more human hacking than machine.

HTML5? Then no sites could run on any browsers, correct?

How would they fare with z/OS, Linux and Unix??

I say the same way, it is not about OS, there is always vulnerabilities in all OSes.

"The reent Wanna Cry attcaks immobilised large parts of Britain's NHS and it is apparent they did not have a DR plan rto revocover"

Agree. That is becoming major issue, if there is nothing to fall back it is downtime obviously.

This is most likely a common one that we are not that much aware of.

Awareness training
Interesting how many of the overlooked security threats come down to No. 8 - employee awareness. Mobilisation, IoT, in-memory phishing attacks push the ball into the court of employees and their devices...a disproportionate focus technology is happening, when hackers are focusing on people more than ever.

Malvertising
Worth noting that malvertising has also been used to deliver malware.

Yet another reason to disable/block Flash, Java, and HTML5 on all but the most trusted of sites.

8 Most Overlooked Security Threats
Interestng article but there is a 90 degree view of this which is disaster recovery when the attack actually works.

The reent Wanna Cry attcaks immobilised large parts of Britain's NHS and it is apparent they did not have a DR plan rto revocover. Moving on, and thinking laterally, there is a case for scrapping the use of Windows in many cases as the bad guys are obviously very proficient in this area. How would they fare with z/OS, Linux and Unix??

Just a few thoughts out of the box.
