The crackers before Christmas

I don't know why exactly, maybe it's because some system administrators go on holiday, or maybe it's because evil students (understand young crackers) are on holiday themselves, but the festive season is always a time when we have more attempted security attacks on our servers. Oh, by the way, hackers are just people looking into the code to change it, they're not evil. Crackers are people getting onto other's systems and trying to misuse it.
