Predictions for 2017

Brief post for my top 5 predictions for all things security related in no order

  • Major court case surrounding encryption that sets a precedent
  • Fileless malware being a biggy next year
  • IoT being the big thing we hear about vulnerability wise
  • Amazon echo being compromised
  • Powershell used a lot more to compromise endpoints with some really nice stuff coming out

and two wild predictions

  • Adobe drop or announce a drop of support for Flash - a prayer more than a belief it will happen
  • Fireye's share price will drop significantly - currently 11.85USD at the time of writing
