Digital billboards in the UK will today start showing hacking attempts
The campaign, sponsored by an insurance company, intends to demonstrate how often hacking attempts are made on a typical small business site.
This week, a new campaign launches in the UK: Dozens of digital displays will demonstrate the frequency of hacking attempts on a typical small business’s website.
Called the Honeypot Poster by campaign sponsor Hiscox insurance, the displays show dots that demonstrate live hacking attempts on custom, “honeypot” proxy servers of the sort that might host a typical small business website, except there is no virus or firewall protection. The servers hold some data but no personal or sensitive info.
