Monthly Web Honeypot Status Report
We have received a tremendous amount of positive feedback on our web-based honeypot alert blog posts. While we agree that this data is useful for raising awareness of individual attack details, we feel that what was missing was information on scale. Specifically, how many of each type of attacks are we seeing. The goal of these new monthly blog posts will be to provide some context on the web attack trends we are seeing in hopes that this will aid organization with determining attack likelihood.
