It’s Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas, with Cyberattacks Lurking in Every Data Store

Based on the holiday song, “It’s Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas,” by Meredith Willson

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas
Everywhere you go

Take a look at emails five and 10, it’s phishing time once again
With suspicious links and attachments that will bring you woe

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas
Cyberattacks lurking in every data store

But the scariest sight to see is the hit that will be
On your own credit score

A date of birth and social security number
Is the wish of Barney and Ben
A credit card and CCV code
Is the hope of Janice and Jen
And cyberattackers can hardly wait use them again and again

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas
Everywhere you go

There’s a breach in the Marriot Hotel, one in Orbitz as well
There’re the stealthy kind that are really hard to know

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas
Soon the fraud will start

And the thing that will make ‘em cyberattackers sing is the PII that you bring
Right within your checkout cart

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas
Cyberattacks lurking in every data store

But the scariest sight to see is the hit that will be
On your own credit score

Sure it’s Christmas, once more
