The nasty cat-and-mouse game between cybercriminals and their guileless targets is getting abominably nasty. Cybercriminals are getting better and better at ducking firewalls and antivirus programs. A legion of hackers are turning to ransomware, planting virus-loaded ads on legitimate sites, while others potentially harness their efforts in exploiting lame bugs in the webiverse. Lame, you say?
