Terrorist HoneyPots?

Thursday, October 6th, 2016

I was reading Checking my honeypot day by Mark Hofman when it occurred to me that discovering CIA/NSA/FBI cybertools may not be as hard as I previously thought.

Imagine creating a <insert-current-popular-terrorist-group-name> website, replete with content ripped off from other terrorist websites, including those sponsored by the U.S. government.

Sharpen your skills at creating fake Twitter followers, AI-generated tweets, etc.

Instead of getting a Booz Allen staffer to betray their employer, you can sit back and collect exploits as they are used.

With just a little imagination, you can create honeypots on and off the Dark Web to attract particular intelligence or law enforcement agencies, security software companies, political hackers and others.

If the FBI can run a porn site, you can use a honeypot to collect offensive cyberweapons.
