I’d joined Project Honey Pot several years ago, and then promptly forgot about it. But this latest rash of lowlifes and losers that are constantly attacking my various websites has me up in arms. There has to be a way to fight back!
And there is! Project Honey Pot is an e-mail address harvester monitoring network. Using sweet and irresistible links on a website to lure in spammers and other scum, Project Honey Pot identifies spammers and the spambots they use to scrape addresses from your website.
It won’t help with the people who are trying to brute force the website by typing in the username “admin” and then trying to guess passwords, or the “Directory Traversal Attacks” or the “WordPress-Specific SQL Injection Attacks” that the Firewall warns me about. But any little thing I can do to fight back makes me feel better.
