APT Attacks Can't be Stopped

One would think that with all the money and effort going into security of corporate systems, it would be getting more and more difficult to break into those systems. However, that's not the way it's playing out. Instead the advances in technology, plus the availability of tools and technology on the Web are making it much more difficult to stay (or get?) ahead of the crooks out there. They can run quick tests of vulnerabilities in systems and if they find even one, can leverage it to gain access. This is working for them through a technique known as Advanced Persistent Threat (APT) Attacks. The technology just escalates, but the attacks can't be stopped. Read about it here.
