December is "prediction season" in the cybersecurity industry. Every major anti-virus software maker and digital-security provider issues its own forecasts of what computer users face in the coming year.
So far this month, the predictions for 2013 look a lot like those for 2012: more Android malware, increased cyberattacks by nation-states and greater activity by "hacktivist" groups such as Anonymous.
However, a few companies go back and check their own predictions at the end of the year to see what they got right — and wrong.
One company that does so is Moscow-based Kaspersky Lab, one of the top five anti-virus companies in the world.
