Spam

  • Starwood Systems are proud members of Project Honey Pot, a distributed system for identifying spammers and the spambots that scrape websites for email addresses.project honeypot logo

    Each day, thousands of robots, crawlers, and spiders troll the web. Website administrators have few resources in order to tell whether a visitor to a site is good or malicious. Project Honey Pot was created in order to provide this information to website administrators in order to help them make informed decisions on who to allow onto their sites.

    The data from Project Honey Pot is collated, processed, and shared with Webmasters to improve security, and law enforcement authorities to track down and prosecute spammers.

    We donate multiple MX records to the project and all Starwood Systems websites have Honeypots installed to capture dictionary attackers, comment spammers and other malicious users.

    The invaluable data provided by Project Honey Pot also allows us to filter out unwanted visits to our websites.

    Blocking visits from malicious bots and individuals not only increases security, but also allows us to see a clearer picture of genuine website traffic and conversion statistics.
