EEye to build world's largest honeypot

Enterprise security vendor eEye is preparing to unveil a free version of its Blink security software for consumers.

Blink offers a single application that protects against buffer overflow and phishing attacks. It also offers intrusion prevention, application white-listing and location-specific security settings.

Consumers will be asked to share data on attacks that target their computers. The software will then act as the world's largest honeypot, allowing the firm to collect samples of live exploits and malware as soon as they become available.

EEye chief executive Ross Brown told that he is hoping for a "one million strong honeypot". EEye to build world's largest honeypot - Personal Computer World
