While I agree that this would be a neat
web-defacement. I personally doubt it is due to the
low "reward". Most likely HackTrap is some WhiteHat's
idea of a silver bullet and he's using every single
GET request as proof of the huge numbers of hackers
that couldn't break in. After some more statistics
and scare tactics, they may find a few customers.
Gotta tip you're (white/black) hats to the security
community, they've got game!
