Cyber-attacks that kill, IPv6, and vulnerability markets on tap for 2013 (http://www.infosecurity-magazine.com)
As rough of a year as 2012 was for cybersecurity, in 2013 we will see higher stakes than ever before, researchers say.
WatchGuard’s security research analysts are predicting upticks in emerging cyber threats – including those that can cause loss of human life.
