eBay wins top bid for Howard Schmidt

Online auction giant eBay is responding to the growing Internet fraud by calling in the nation's former cybersecurity czar.

Silly rabbit, defacement is for kiddies:

The NYTimes reports on a spin-off from Honeynets - Honeytokens. Little pieces of bogus info designed to entice crackers. Neat idea.
Honeytokens are pieces of seemingly enticing information that have no useful value. Embedded in ways so that no innocent person should accidentally stumble upon them, honeytokens trigger alarms when viewed, grabbed or downloaded. For example, a bank could insert a fake credit card number into its files and then set up a program called a "sniffer" on the network that would send out an alarm if anyone touched that particular number.
