Re: Not even the NSA can get it right

To the NSA's advantage, I truly believe that the NSA.gov site is a natural honeypot. If you think of all the people that try to break in to it, the NSA looks at their logs and says "Sweet!, we've learned something new today. Keep on comming..."

just my $0.02

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

According to netcraft, they are running IIS.

, 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).
