Boo! These days, Halloween doesn't hold a candle to the frights technology professionals have to deal with in the so-called real world. To illustrate, bMighty has put together a unique Top 10 List of Horrors that may actually be threatening your company right now.Like most of what you'll find on bMighty.com, Fear Factors is targeted at small and midsize businesses, but I bet there's something in this set of scares that will make any technology pro nervous.

For instance, if you're not worried about cybercrime syndicates leveling blended attacks against your company, well, you should be. And you're probably not even thinking about how rampant industry consolidation in the wake of the economic crunch will effect your company's tech operations. But as Wall Street continues its historic volatility, odds are the fallout could be more disruptive than we would have thought.

And what about the prospect of your company's old computers rising from the dead to hurt you? It may sound like a techno twist on a cheap slasher flick, but it's actually a very real concern.

Check out the details on these frights, and see what else is in store this Halloween.

Boo!
