hontel - Telnet Honeypot

  •        53

HonTel is a Honeypot for Telnet service. Basically, it is a Python v2.x application emulating the service inside the chroot environment. Originally it has been designed to be run inside the Ubuntu environment, though it could be easily adapted to run inside any Linux environment. Setting the environment and running the application requires intermmediate Linux administration knowledge. The whole deployment process can be found "step-by-step" inside the deploy.txt file. Configuration settings can be found and modified inside the hontel.py itself. For example, authentication credentials can be changed from default root:123456 to some arbitrary values (options AUTH_USERNAME and AUTH_PASSWORD), custom Welcome message can be changed from default (option WELCOME), custom hostname (option FAKE_HOSTNAME), architecture (option FAKE_ARCHITECTURE), location of log file (inside the chroot environment) containing all telnet commands (option LOG_PATH), location of downloaded binary files dropped by connected users (option SAMPLES_DIR), etc.

GoBot2 - Second Version of The GoBot Botnet, But more advanced.

  •    Go

After seeing another users Go based botnet i wanted to do more work on my GoBot, But i ended up building something a bit more. There is issues with this but it more of a advanced PoC.... I am not a good coder but i was able to make this buy doing some basic reading online. There was more i wanted to do with this project but i stopped, I am getting out of making Malware and virus's... I am going to move on to more legitimet things. Though i will be posting some of my old projects on my Github, and most of witch are malevolent i am putting them here to make it simpler for the 'good guys' to fight them and there kin. The C&C is a program, You can compile it for Windows, Linux, Mac systems. Its a self-running web-server that handles all connections on the selected port in the settings. it will serve the HTLM C&C to a connector if you allow it and it saves data about account, bots and commands as a SQL database and bots files (screenshots, keylogs, ect) as file under the bots own "Profile" You can control the botnet from the program(more secure) or control it from the HTML C&C. The C&C's program is extremely stable, Go based servers are know for handling millions or requests at once without fail, just make sure you have a good connection. The C&C has a build in hard-coded login (kinda like a Backdoor) you can use if you 'forgot' the account login. the C&C can have any number of accounts. With it being a self-contained program this removes the issue of SQLi attacks on the C&C so its more SECURE. The C&C can also run inside a Tor Hidden service if configured right and the client (bot) can connect to it using a onion.to or onion.cab forwarder if needed. Tor can also be used by the bot via a SOCKS proxy... Simple to do, Google it.

Honeypot - Simple spam prevention package for Laravel applications

  •    PHP

"Honeypot" method of spam prevention is a simple and effective way to defer some of the spam bots that come to your site. This technique is based on creating an input field that should be left empty by the real users of the application but will most likely be filled out by spam bots. This package creates a hidden DIV with two fields in it, honeypot field (like "my_name") and a honeytime field - an encrypted timestamp that marks the moment when the page was served to the user. When the form containing these inputs invisible to the user is submitted to your application, a custom validator that comes with the package checks that the honeypot field is empty and also checks the time it took for the user to fill out the form. If the form was filled out too quickly (i.e. less than 5 seconds) or if there was a value put in the honeypot field, this submission is most likely from a spam bot.

laravel-honeypot - Preventing spam submitted through forms

  •    PHP

When adding a form to a public site, there's a risk that spam bots will try to submit it with fake values. Luckily, the majority of these bots are pretty dumb. You can thwart most of them by adding an invisible field to your form that should never contain a value when submitted. Such a field is called a honeypot. These spam bots will just fill all fields, including the honeypot. When a submission comes in with a filled honeypot field, this package will discard that request. On top of that this package also checks how long it took to submit the form. This is done using a timestamp in another invisible field. If the form was submitted in a ridiculously short time, the anti spam will also be triggered.

RootTheBox - A Game of Hackers (CTF Scoreboard & Game Manager)

  •    HTML

Root the Box is a real-time scoring engine for computer wargames where hackers can practice and learn. The application can be easily configured and modified for any CTF game. Root the Box attempts to engage novice and experienced players alike by combining a fun game-like environment, with realistic challenges that convey knowledge applicable to the real-world, such as penetration testing, incident response, digital forensics and threat hunting. Just as in traditional CTF games, each team or player targets challenges of varying difficulty and sophistication, attempting to collect flags. Root the Box brings additional options to the game. It can be configured to allow the creation of "Botnets" by uploading a small bot program to target machines, which grant periodic rewards with (in-game) money for each bot in the botnet; the larger the botnet the larger the reward. Money can be used to unlock new levels, buy hints to flags, download a target's source code, or even "SWAT" other players by bribing the (in-game) police. Player's "bank account passwords" can also be publically displayed by the scoring engine, allowing players to crack each other's passwords and steal each other's money.
