Why does the number of threats stopped go down?

On TrendMicro, the list of "Threats stopped" in the past month sometimes goes down rather than up, sometimes by a huge amount in one day. Could this signify a threat that was previously thought to have been stopped but now isn't? Why would it do this?

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

This is the normal procedure of this product. It consumes lots of cpu potential and slows down the process. U may use Trend Micro Smart Protection Network for better performance. Also it depends on RAM/Process speed/network bandwidth etc. U may link here to clear the concept, specially on <a href=”http://us.trendmicro.com/imperia/md/content/us/pdf/products/enterprise/tmsm1.5_adminguide.pdf”>TroubleShoot Chapter</a>

    The count goes down because less attacks have been attempted. As you are aware, it counts the number of attacks it has stopped/detected. It shouldn't stop an attack one day, then the next let it through. That doesn't make sense. I wouldn't worry too much about this, as long as all your AV and firewall are up to date, then there is no reason to worry.
