As reported in Technology Review:
As a promotional tool to impress potential clients, Mykonos engineers have built versions of the company's software that taunt attackers. One directs a hacker to a Google Maps search for nearby criminal attorneys. Another parodies Microsoft's now-defunct anthropomorphic paper clip, Clippy, with the message: "It looks like you're an unsophisticated script kiddie. Do you need help writing code?"
Their tactics include placing supercookies on suspected attackers computers.
There are few things hackers hate more than being taunted. So is this a valid strategy? Or is it waiving a red cloak at a bull?
