MessageLabs has unveiled its security predictions for 2008, and unsurprisingly the forecast is a tad gloomy, with video file spam among other nastiness predicted for the coming year.

MessageLabs' Skeptic team, claimed that the cybercrime market was poised to be even 'hotter' in 2008 as spammers increase targeted attacks and create new social engineering techniques to claim a stake in cyber-crime’s $105 billion market.

"2007 was the year of prolific cyber-crime with certain gangs becoming famous within the security industry," said Mark Sunner, chief security analyst at MessageLabs. "Notoriety within a hot market always encourages an influx of new players wanting their slice of success and thus, the threat market is set to be even hotter in 2008."
