emmenthalAs promised, we are back online!

We phys­i­cally moved our servers by a bare 3,500 km, in this way we should be in much bet­ter con­di­tion to ful­fill the reg­u­lar servers main­te­nance routine.

We do have a bit of news though. As you prob­a­bly noticed from the top menu, all the lan­guage flags dis­ap­peared. We took the deci­sion to con­cen­trate our efforts on the Eng­lish ver­sion of Zone-​H.

Web defacements 2007 in sharp decrease (-37%). Is it a good news or bad news?

21/03/2008 Written by Roberto Preatoni

decrease_300We recently pub­lished the 2007 sta­tis­tics based on the data col­lected by Zone-​H. One of the most inter­est­ing fact is the sharp decrease (-37%) of the attacks com­pared to the attacks reported the pre­vi­ous year. In fact, while in year 2006 we filed 752,361 attacks, in year 2007 the reported attacks were “only” 480,905. Since the end of the 90s, when the first mir­ror archives (All­das, Safemode, Attri­tion) started to track web­site deface­ments, this is the first time ever that the trend is show­ing a neg­a­tive figure.

Usu­ally from year to year, we were used to see an aver­age incre­ment of about 30% (in year 2005 the reported attacks were 493,840).

Is this a good news or a bad news? Cer­tainly web­site deface­ments are loos­ing pop­u­lar­ity. A few years ago a Microsoft deface­ment would have hit the news, today there’s no more hype among jour­nal­ists in report­ing such fact. We just got used to it, period.
The inter­est­ing ques­tion is: if the Inter­net user-​base is get­ting larger and larger and if the sys­tems are get­ting weaker and weaker, why the web­site deface­ments are decreas­ing by strong figures?

We do have an answer and to explain it to you we have to go back with our mem­o­ries in year 2005…
