Wallahalla writes "Interesting article on ZDNet about HoneyPots (intentionally vulnerable computers placed on the net in hopes of attracting hackers). Security professionals, programmers and psychologists are all working together to try to enhance network security in the face of increasing attacks by the hordes of script kiddies running the net today." We mentioned these quite awhile ago. Actually its an interesting article. I'd like to say pretend that when I got 0wn23d that it was really just my HoneyPot fooling them.
