We've architected the system to allow you to choose whether trends and statistics will be available to third parties by designating your honey pots either public or private. Our idea is that some users may want to include a link from their site to their honey pot stats pages and we want to provide a mechanism to allow for that.
However, we haven't turned on stats/trends reporting yet. We want to make sure we have enough data to make the stats meaningful before we begin reporting them. I'd guess we'll turn them on in a month or two. When we do we'll report things like what the average time between a harvester first visiting and when the first spam message is received, how many spam servers are, on average, associated with a harvester, etc...
Even though the stats/trends are not available, the list of harvesters that are attacking your site(s) is currently online. However, the way that you get to that page (through a POST instead of a GET) makes it difficult for us to allow 3rd parties to access the page. For a lot of reasons, including this one, we have been thinking about changing this. If we do then 3rd parties will be able to access the details of the harvesters trolling your site(s) if you designate them as "public" when you set them up.
I'll post here if we make that change (which I think we will when we have a chance) and also when we turn on the formal stats reporting.
Thanks for your question and welcome to the Project.
