    neat idea. as long as they keep it on ports 80 and 443. i don't want anyone scanning my other ports, including MS

    So it's basically a honeypot that searches for vulnerabilities rather than hackers searching for them? Did I read that right?

    it doesn't search for vulnerabilities, it simulates vulnerable machines and visits websites to see if the site will try to exploit the virtual vulnerable machine, and alarms if so

    my first post was misleading. i should have said "attempts connections" instead of "scans"
