Nobody Is That Dumb ... Oh, Wait IX

Wow, a perfect example for my "Nobody Is That Dumb ... Oh, Wait" series: ultimate, deep, abysmal degree of confusion about "threats", "risks", "attack targets", "exposure" and "vulnerabilities."

A perfect cause to scream "Richard, get them!!!" :-)

So, the "threats" are: AJAX, Google Apps, Social networks, virtualization, virtual words, etc. Holy cow, I am deeply "threatened" by Google Apps - they eat babies and stuff :-)

On a more serious note, these are maybe "emerging attack targets" or maybe "risky emerging technologies," but come on!!! threats?! Gimme a break! How dumb is that!
