Here we are with the statistics for the cyber attacks included in the June 2013 timelines (part I and part II).

Another day, another revelation inside the (in)visible Cyber War going on Middle East.

Here we are with the statistics from the Cyber Attack Timelines for the first and the second half of July 2012.
