Rapid7 have announced the selected projects for the second round of their Magnificent7 program. The program sponsors open source efforts in the area of IT security over the course of a year and provides them with Rapid7's technological and marketing expertise.
In March, Cuckoo and Androguard - both developed by members of the Honeynet Project - were chosen, and today's press release revealed two more of our members' projects to be supported under the Magnificent7 program.
Buttinsky, led by Patrik Lantz and Lukas Rist, will be a framework for botnet monitoring built from scratch. Ghost, led by Sebastian Poeplau, protects against malware that spreads on USB storage. We also congratulate the developers of John the Ripper, which is the third project to be selected today.
The HoneyMap shows a real-time visualization of attacks against the Honeynet Project's sensors deployed around the world. It leverages the internal data sharing protocol hpfeeds as its data source. Read this post to learn about the technical details and frequently asked questions. Before going into explanations, take a look at the map itself: map.honeynet.org!

We've just released version 0.2 of the Ghost USB honeypot for Windows XP and Windows 7 with a lot of great new features. You can download the new version from the project page. In this post, I'm going to give an overview of the changes.
Let's start with what you usually do first: install Ghost. Installing the honeypot has been tedious in the past, so we've built an installer that handles most of the work for you. Just run it and enjoy.
As the end of GSoC 2012 will come in the next few days, i am proud to announce IPv6-guard. IPv6-guard is an IPv6 attack detector tool including some defense mechanisms to protect against most of recent attacks on ipv6 protocol suite.
2.1 How it works
6Guard is a honeypot-based IPv6 attack detector aiming at detecting the link-local level attacks, especially when the port-mirror feature of switch is unavailable.
AREsoft-updater will check for the latest available version of each individual project/tool listed above and compare it with the local (installed) version in A.R.E. If newer version is available, AREsoft-updater will automatically download and install the update for your A.R.E
I'm announcing the new features of Android dynamic analysis tool DroidBox as GSoC 2012 approaches the end. In this release, I would like to introduce two parts of my work: DroidBox porting and APIMonitor.
