FTP honeypot in C++
« on: April 27, 2014, 08:43:43 pm »
Hey all I noticed that people were trying to access my FTP service and instead of just turning up logging I decided to write a quick FTP honeypot (turning up logging won't tell me about any files they are wanting to upload or download - as I'm not granting them access).

I call it ftphoney - you can grab a copy for Windows/Linux (Debian) here

The basic idea is that it accepts any commands and will do nothing in return (sort of like a bit bucket). It does utilize threads (real threads - not fake Python threads ;) ). My personal interest is seeing the password as well as any files they request.

Right now it doesn't implement ACTIVE or PASV protocols but they should be fairly trivial to put in (so they won't see directory listings). What I would like to do is present a root file system along with fake files and see what they do.

If you want to test it out - point your FTP client to on port 21.
