Re: World cup final every day
I definitely think your statement regarding the non-world cup average being lower than the other rounds is a valid argument. However, I think how drastically low the drop was during the final does support that that game most likely had something to do with the change.

Re: More world cups>
They may really be watching that, it may even be less attacks during that time :- )).

Re: World Cup
That goes in line with the young makes stereotyping of hackers. Just saying it.

World cup final every day
 

Hackers like world cup finals then. If we play world cup finals every day would our lives be better then? It is also surprising all other games are above non-world cup average. I would say the data does not really make that much sense, hope there is now flow in the statistics.

Re: What about the Olympics?
I was wondering the same thing.  <sarcasm>I guess the hacker job application form looks something like this: reverse enginering, shell coding, Soccer fan....</sarcasm>

Re: What about the Olympics?
@Marilyn  Well there's definitely been plenty of research about malicious activity during the Super Bowl, and as I recall it's rather high -- but that's because it's only interesting to Americans.

What about the Olympics?
Hmmm. Is soccer the sport of choice for hackers or has anyone done research on website hacks for other events like the Olympics?

World Cup
There's something about as final, when you know you're watching the best of the best that gets people excited. I'm no big football fan but I watched a few minutes of the final. Perhaps hackers are the same.
