Nepenthes is a low interaction honeypot like honeyd or mwcollect.
Low Interaction Honeypots emulate _known_ vulnerabilities to collect
information about potential attacks. Nepenthes is designed to emulate
vulnerabilties worms use to spread, and to capture these worms. As
there are many possible ways for worms to spread, Nepenthes is modular.
There are module interface to
- resolve dns asynchronous
- emulate vulnerabilities
- download files
- submit the downloaded files
- trigger events (sounds abstract and it is abstract but is still quite useful)
- shellcode handler
