Real-time Information on Global Cyber Attacks

WorldCrunch reports on Honeynet, a new website devoted to provide real-time information about cyber attacks taking place across the globe.

Created by the Research Group IT-Security from the RWTH Achen University in Germany, HoneyMap shows you the attacks as they happen, when they happen.

The German researchers used the Honeynet Project’s sensors deployed around the world.

Founded in 1999, the Honeynet Project is an international “non-profit security research organization dedicated to investigating the latest attacks and developing open source security tools to improve Internet security.”

The map itself is fascinating.  You can see it here.
