HonTel Python 2.6|2.7 License

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/Debian environment, though it could be easily adapted to run inside any Linux environment.

Documentation:

Setting the environment and running the application requires intermediate 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.

Note: Some botnets tend to delete the files from compromised hosts (e.g. /bin/bash) in order to harden itself from potential attempts of cleaning and/or attempts of installation coming from other (concurrent) botnets. In such cases either the whole chroot environment has to be reinstalled or host directory where the chroot directory resides (e.g. /srv/chroot/) should be recovered from the previously stored backup (recommended).
