Mikey Posted November 24, 2004 Share Posted November 24, 2004 Don't know if this has been discussed here before or not but it is certainly worth looking at this: http://www.projecthoneypot.org If you have a web page under your control you can really help out with this. If you have an MX DNS entry to donate, you can help even more. Studies have shown (can't find the link I had....) that the majority of E-mail addresses are added to spammer's list via harvesting websites and USENET posts. This project attempts to analyze these harvesting activities and provide near-real-time data to the spam-fighting community. No, I don't work on the project. I just thought it was an excellent example of the kind of folks working for the white-hats out here. Their site is very well done. If you have a web-page, spend 5 minutes and register. Then you can check back in any time and see exactly how many harvesters have crossed your path (and exactly WHO they are). Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
