"According to HP's new Top Cyber Security Risks Report for 2011,
there was a 19.5 percent decrease in the number of new publicly
reported vulnerabilities over the course of last year.
But don't start celebrating just yet, because attack volume
still continues to increase. Attack data from HP TippingPoint shows
approximately 475 million attacks in 2010 vs. 531 million in 2011
-- an 11 percent increase.
