    Fighting Internet Worms With Honeypots
    By Laurent Oudot Oct 23, 2003 (Infocus feature article)

    This paper will evaluate the usefulness of using honeypots to fight
    Internet worms, including a discussion on capturing a worm, redirecting
    worm traffic to fake services, launching counter attacks to clean infected
    hosts, and finally removing the worm or negating its effects.
