    Probably because few people use honeypots or have one.

    Even if someone does notice this forum, doesn't mean that they will use it.

    Sure. Just because a forum doesn't have 10,000 posts doesn't mean people aren't reading it. The reality is that honeypot usage is still a relatively new thing and I suspect that many either don't have the time or patience to setup up a good honeypot and ensure a limited risk factor. That's life.

    There are lots of resources out there for honeypots but I still say the best is http://project.honeynet.org. (whoops! Fixed! )

    I experimented with a honeypot called KFSensor from keyfocus http://www.keyfocus.net/kfsensor/

    Though I am not very familiar with honeypots nor have I played with KFSensor enough to give a report, I will say it was fun watching the connections come in and the commands that were typed. KFSensor is comercial, a trial is available.

    I just found a honeypot (directed from another website): http://www.security-corporation.com/trapserver.html

    Looks interesting and it's FREE! (gotta love that 4 letter word). So those of you in Windows might want to try it.

    I use kfsensor. I agree on the watching connections bit. Mostly it runs as a spam trap and that isnt wildly interesting.

    I caught someone trying to send fake aol billing messages from a russian ISP once, and another person trying to exploit yahoo pager. I keep hoping I might catch something from these new trojans but without a proper simulator behind the ports there isnt much hope I think.
