Cyber Attacks Against DoD Decline?

At least according to Noah Shachtman writing for Wired’s Danger Room.  He points to a draft of a federal report indicating that if this year’s rate of attacks remains the same as last year’s, we could be on track to see a reduction in the number of cyber attacks on military systems.  However, Shachtman noted:

The report cautioned that the drop in “malicious activity … may or may not represent a decrease in the volume of attempts to penetrate defense and military networks.” Instead, the Pentagon seems to be doing a little better job in securing its networks, ever since a relatively-unsophisticated worm made its way onto hundreds of thousands of military computers in late 2008.
