We don't see dedicated and targeted attacks at 4 million cablemodem users
designed to drop off trojans, ddos zombies, and similar.
Many of the worst "dedicated and targeted attacks" of late presuppose the
presence of a zombie net - preventing the formation of such a net then makes
the attack a lot harder to carry out.
And for that matter, installation of a keystroke logger to sniff out credit card
numbers *IS* a dedicated and targeted attack - on the credit card system.
