    Yes, I found that a little while back and it was pretty interesting. I have found other google honey pots as well, sites that will give back "HACKING ATTEMPT!!!" and such lol.

    Damn phish...I wish I had your job!

    Thanks for the fun. I remember doing some Googling of this type for fun in 2003 after discovering http://johnny.ihackstuff.com - he seems to be the pioneer or at least one of the originators of using Google as a hack tool. Quite fun I must say.

    It looks like a bunch of sites have gotten wise because about a year ago there were TONS of valid hits. Glad to see improvements in this very basic security measure (re.; dont allow public access of passwd file to web site).

    Definition of honeypot?
    NWFUSION: http://www.nwfusion.com/techinsider/...security2.html

    A host or network with known vulnerabilities deliberately exposed to a public network. Honeypots are useful in studying attackers' behavior and also in drawing attention away from other potential targets.
    Basically to draw hackers to it rather than your "real" website. Other objective is to use to study hacking behaviors to learn.
