Honeypots are definitly a good idea !

  • It's a good first line defense
    (catching the probes/attacks on fake SAFE services)
  • It's very informative, you can even learn from script kiddies sometimes
  • <extremist mode> It's sometimes good to respond to trasher, see it as an "educative task" </extremist mode> ;-)
Although I would suggest you to avoid setting those kind of things on someone else's box.

Now, to answer to your last question :
GO ! Honeypots are fun stuff to play with for anybody interested in security.
I'm planning to setup one as soon as I manage to get a permanent Net access.
Furthermore, if you do it, I'll be very interesting to read your posts/msg about what interesting stuff you found in your logs, what problem you faced, trick your learns...


"Only Bad Coders Code Badly In Perl" (OBC2BIP)

In reply to Re: Probed for formmail.pl by arhuman
in thread Probed for formmail.pl by grinder

Title:
Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":



  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
