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?

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.

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.
