PoizonBOx hacks past security firm's 'honey pot'

Author: JT Smith

The Register: "New Zealand security firm Co-Logic has become one of the latest victims of prolific
hacking group PoizonBOx.

In order to monitor hacker activity the security assessment firm had set up a "honey
pot" server, a poorly protected section of its Web infrastructure that contained no
real data and was designed purely to log the activity of crackers.

However after hacking into this site, PoizonBOx was able to break into the firm's
genuine systems, IDG reports. The defacement has been recorded by Alldas.de and
can be seen here."
