Bloomberg shows us how your computer can get hacked in less than a minute. If you watch the video carefully - you will see the security expert exploits a security hole which was patched 5 years ago. Cisco, Java, Windows, Office, Apple OS X and many, many more - all have security holes. The US Computer Emergency Readiness Team (US-CERT) publishes a list every week detailing found and reported security issues and what to do about patching them (get the updates here - http://www.us-cert.gov/ncas/alerts/) . Are you sure the company systems are updated and protected as many of these security exploits are not the kinds of things an anti-virus/anti-spyware software will protect against. Just recently we discussed how much corporate revenue and jobs are lost due to cyberattacks (see the article).
