Wired - Ten Worst Cybercrimes of past decade
Wired magazine shares some of the worst cyberattacks during the past decade. As I helped protect our company during this period of time, my own list would include most of these. I might also include the costly attacks of the Love Bug, Nimda, Klez, SoBig, Blaster, or Sasser attacks in this group. Defenses, patch management and security were especially weak early in the decade. However even with current improved security, the sophistication of cyberattacks have also increased in this game of cat-and-mouse.
