I recently joined Project Honey Pot and have helped to catch 3 bots which have found the honey pot on this site (I may have had more but user agent filtering will have probably blocked a few).
One of the IP addresses that has made it over here seems to be responsible for sending out Gouranga messages – this being the buzzword of the Hare Krishna cult which gets plastered on various road and railway bridges over here. Weird.
It’s operating from an IP address owned by Eclipse Internet, incidentally.


  1. I got an email from project honeypot today – I caught my first previously unknown email harvester.
    Most of the bots I’m managing to trap seem to be sending out phishing emails at the moment.

  2. I got Gouranga spam the other day. What do they expect to get out of it? More members? Or is there a more logical reason?
