Slow / Busy days - 2011 edition

Last year the Chinese New Year was marked not only by the festivities (lovely fun time, I have to admit) but also by the significant reduction in the number of the targeted attacks we receive ( see this post of Feb 20, 2010 Slow / busy days )  This year, I am happy to report that we got another break - the last targeted attack I saw was on February 1, 2011 and it was the message re-sent from earlier in January - two days before the actual Chinese New Year. By the way, I noticed an increase in targeted attacks and malicious activity (attacks on mail servers) around July 4, 2010, which is a holiday in USA but not in Asia.
Again, it might be a coincidence but I don't think so :)

I wish you all a great Year of the Rabbit!
