Apparently, computer hackers are human beings too.
A new survey of computer hackers has found that hackers like to go on holiday during the summer months, but warns that they will be particularly active over Christmas and New Year. Apparently, even though company IT security managers are likely to be on holiday during the summer months, hackers also like to go away then. And for them the best time to target companies is over the winter holidays. Of the hackers surveyed 56% said that Christmas was the best time to do some serious hacking into corporate systems, while 25% favoured New Year’s Eve.
