If you want to hack into someone else’s network, the week between Christmas and New Year’s Day is the best time. I love that time of year. No one is around, and most places are running on a skeleton crew at best. If you’re good, and you do it right, you won’t be noticed even by the automated systems. And that was a perfect time of year to hit these guys with their nice e-commerce site—plenty of credit card numbers, I figured.
