PoisonBOx hacks past security firm's 'honey pot'

New Zealand security firm Co-Logic has become one of the latest victims of prolific hacking group PoisonBOx. 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, PoisonBOx 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.
