AWPSHM -->Automated Web Patrol with Strider HoneyMonkeys;
Adobe pdf Technical White Paper file is available ftp://ftp.research.microsoft.com/pub/tr/TR-2005-72.pdf


The HoneyMonkey Project is sanctioned by Microsoft, so you KNOW it has to be good. Microsoft's home  page for it is here.

The article from ComputerWorld magazine is

TRUST me, this stuff is reaaly cool, and it's good to know. I'll bet there is ZERO publicity on this from MS, for a pretty good reason--Security!. Duh.

WHAT is a HoneyMonkey?

Briefly, it is (Quote from the ComputerWorld article)
