Hacking set to surge during Christmas and the New Year

news alert (excerpt)

London, UK - 17 December 2002, 13:00 GMT - December is set to be the worst month for digital attacks based on the current trend and the expected seasonal surge of attacks recorded during Christmas and at the turn of the New Year since 1999.

Numbers from previous years going back to 1995, demonstrate a surge in digital attacks in the last 10 days of each year. Especially in the last three years - 1999, 2000 and 2001 - the worst affected were the days just before Christmas Eve and New Year's Eve. A similar pattern is predicted for 2002 by the mi2g Intelligence Unit. In contrast, Christmas Day and New Year's Day are expected to be relatively quiet.
