An anonymous reader writes "Enjoy the rest of your summer vacation say the hacking community, as you're far less likely to be targeted now than during your Christmas and New Year vacation. That's according to the results of the "Hacker Habits" survey by Tufin Technologies which was conducted amongst 79 hackers at Defcon 17 in Las Vegas this month. Eighty nine percent of hackers admitted that IT professionals taking a summer vacation would have little impact on their hacking activities, as a whopping 81% revealed they are far more active during the winter holidays with 56% citing Christmas as the best time to engage in corporate hacking and 25% naming New Years Eve."
