McAfee Releases Annual "Top Scary Reasons to Buy Our Software" List

Security outfit McAfee today unveiled its 2011 Threat Predictions report, and sure enough, the biggest threats are aimed at “2010′s most buzzed about platforms and services, including Google’s Android, Apple’s iPhone, foursquare, Google TV and the Mac OS X platform, which are all expected to become major targets for cybercriminals.” Another in a long list of non-shocking (but still sobering) predictions: “Politically motivated attacks will be on the rise, as more groups are expected to repeat the WikiLeaks paradigm.” The report’s bottom line: Anything you do online carries risks.

About Voices

Along with original content and posts from across the Dow Jones network, this section of AllThingsD includes Must-Reads From Other Websites — pieces we’ve read, discussions we’ve followed, stuff we like. Six posts from external sites are included here each weekday, but we only run the headlines. We link to the original sites for the rest. These posts are explicitly labeled, so it’s clear that the content comes from other websites, and for clarity’s sake, all outside posts run against a pink background.

We also solicit original full-length posts and accept some unsolicited submissions.
