Targeted Attacks - 2010 Predictions

It doesn't seem long into the new year and we already have two really high-profile targeted attacks,
  • The one reported at the end of December was a targeted attack on Google and a few other companies using some 0-day code. - Google's release
  • The other is a new report of defense contractors being targeted using a only-recently patched exploit for adobe acrobat reader. - F-secure's writeup
Not surprisingly, motivation of would-be attackers continues to move from targets of opportunity to targets of value, the surprising thing about it is how quickly this trend is progressing.
