>> Hello participants of Mailing List.
>>
>> For last time there were a lot of security predictions for new 2009 year
>> (I'll do my own soon ;-)), but there was no security totals of last year,
>> especially in web security field. At the least I didn't see such news.
>>
>> So here is my totals of web security's evolution in 2008
>> (http://websecurity.com.ua/2788/). I made such totals last year and made
>> it
>> this time.
>>
>> 1. Though in 2007 there were more security projects, but nevertheless in
>> 2008 I made some interesting projects: Day of bugs in Google Chrome
>> (http://websecurity.com.ua/2406/), Day of bugs in browsers
>> (http://websecurity.com.ua/2453/), Day of bugs in browsers 2
>> (http://websecurity.com.ua/2573/).
>>
>> 2. New phase of browsers wars has begun with release of Google Chrome,
>> which
>> showed together with his innovations, also multiple vulnerabilities.
>>
>> 3. XSS vulnerabilities spread yet more and again became most widespread
>> vulnerabilities in web applications.
>>
>> 4. There was an increase of hackers' activity. Particularly in Uanet an
>> increase of hackers' activity (http://websecurity.com.ua/2320/) at 200% in
>> first half year of 2008 in comparison with similar period of 2007 (and as
>> my additional data shows, which I'll publish soon, this index is more
>> large).
>>
>> 5. Fishing became more widespread and new technique of fishing attacks has
>> appeared with using of Flash (http://websecurity.com.ua/2450/).
>>
>> 6. Attacks with using of Insufficient Anti-automation vulnerabilities
>> spread. Particularly attacks at captcha of popular webmail systems.
>>
>> 7. There was an increase of attacks on social networks.
>>
>> 8. New web worms were appeared, particularly Facebook Worm.
>>
>> 9. There was an increase of numbers of web pages infected by viruses.
>> Including in Uanet, where I often discovered infected web sites.
