Re: Black Monday DDoS
Of course, that's also when companies are most vigilant.

But what about another high-traffic day... say, two days before Christmas?

Agree. Fraud is always going up, attacks are also concentrating vulnerable periods  such as Xbox attack on Christmas day. :--))

Re: Via vulnerable web apps
I said it should. We may not be able to prove the correlation but companies not paying attention to revers social engineering attacks would most likely not pay attention the security.

Black Monday DDoS
If you want to do DDoS attack Cyber Monday is best opportunity for worst damage. Companies that are relying on cyber Monday profits should keep that in mind.

Thanks for sharing, Sara! It's definitely more important than ever that shoppers keep a wary eye out as online fraud usually spikes during the Holiday season.

Re: Via vulnerable web apps
On a related note, DEF CON every year hosts the social engineering capture-the-flag contest, wherein people socially engineer key data "flags" out of Fortune 500 companies; I wonder if the list of worse-performing companies in SECTF, social engineering-wise, correlates in any way to technical security.
