I decided to try out GlastopfNG recently, I don't know too much about it other than that it is a web application honeypot and the successor to Glastopf. I decided that the best way to learn about it would be to try it out.
This was on a Ubuntu 10.04 LTS. At first I set out to compile from source but as the binaries are provided and compiling from source turned out to be a little tricky I took the easier option.
wget http://dev.glastopf.org/attachments/17/GlastopfNG.zip unzip GlastopfNG.zip cd GlastopfNG/
As this is not the latest version there is a NullPointerException bug in this binary, we have to move a .log file to fix this:
mv ./modules/report/cleanLog/cleanLog.log ./modules/report/cleanLogXXX.log
(This needs to be run each time before you start GlastopfNG)
Then we can start!
java -jar GlastopfNG.jar
Now to experiment, results to follow!
