A must read article from the UK edition of Ars Technica, a popular technology blog and one of my personal sources for solid tech writing, (written by Sebastian Anthony) explores on one of the Driving forces in the exponential rise in security threats in recent years, the development of the zero day marketplace. I highly recommend everyone read this to get an idea of the scope of the issues when it comes to security in the current technological climate.
