Traffic drops on our sensors

Last night our security engineers noted some very interesting things happening with our sensors. After midnight some coordinated attacks that we have been seeing for weeks suddenly dropped off. We have not see a single attack since midnight yesterday.

This is highly unusual since we have been under sustained attacks since 2005. What this may indicate is that the organized attackers are starting to realize that by attacking our infrastructure they are denying themselves access to many other targets. You see by attacking us you allow us to send out updates to thousands of Internet users thereby protecting them from attack.

Only time will tell if this strange, eerily silence continues. Keep in mind though Mr. Attacker that we have visibility on thousands of endpoints and we will continue to protect our customers regardless on who you decide to attack. If we see it, we will block you, end of story!
