More world cups>
Why don't we encourage more frequent world cups? Every 3 years would be 25% better. Or, it might even lose its appeal among the targeted 'folks'.

I like the idea of more frequent World Cups for many reasons, one of which is I'm suffering from withdrawal from this one. And if a WC final is what it takes to keep websites relatively safe for a couple of hours, I vote for more World Cup frequency.

Two world cups are played in successive years, then a two year gap, then two in a row again, in a repeating pattern. Next year's cup will be in Vancouver.

Re: More world cups>
:-) Yes, and that's the one the US is favored to win! 

As a former NCAA soccer player whose former teammate is the new US Women's National Team coach, I should have noted that as well. :-) Let's see how the 2015 FIFA Women's World Cup final influences website attackers. #uswnt

How cool! Does that mean you get a discount on tickets if you go? I am an avid soccer fan, and I would love to watch a world cup match, and since this coming one is in this continent, I'm thinking of attending at least the final rounds.

=) No, but several of us (her former 'mates) are planning to attend a match or two next year.

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.

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?

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.
