Puhleeze, do you really think that tax funded organizations have nothing
better to do? Government faces a continual battle for resources and
time. Setting up a "honeypot" as putzy as this would take time and
effort that could be much better spent. Are you sure it's the NSA that
lol are you guys joking? They wouldn't allow an xss bug on their
website on purpose come on now.
You're not devious enough. Remember that the *best* place to
put a honeypot is right out there in plain sight where it's
likely to attract
attention. So now they've grepped their Apache logs, and they've
added several dozen people to their "suspected script kiddie" list.
(Remember - the NSA probably knows more about proper
airgapping than anybody.
All *those* webservers have on them is non-sensitive content,
so you can't actually *get* anything really interesting to
happen - in the NSA view of the world, "public website gets
defaced" isn't particularly interesting or noteworthy).
Full-Disclosure - We believe in it.
