Honssh honeypot - Skilled attacker

On 4-29-2015 an actually skilled attacker logs in. I'm not sure if he realized he was in a honeypot, and was trying to gain access to honssh. Or if he was trying to break into what he thought was a router. At any rate, he was skilled enough to write a one line shell script on the fly to search for open ports.

looks like too much coffee and not noticing the 65536 typo
20% great technique 80% loading for port scanning

He should have nohupped the port scan, redirected it to a file, grepped that.
Sound-song name ? :)
He knew that it was a honeypot and he tried to ger access to the host machine.

Nice one, nice lesson for script kiddies to realize that a lot of recon can be done in bash prompt without a script. Gave me new respect for bash.
lmao if only we could see the look on his face at the end
good to see there is someone out there knowing more than an wget command to download some "hacker scripts"
Props to this guy...

Nmap could have done the job BUT it's not straight forward as you think,nmap can be NOISY!

Were running this on a raspberry pi?
Nmap the easy way
I don't know why people are bashing on you for calling him "skilled" they are propably jealous :3 Anyway how did the attacker know he was in a honeypot?

Is nobody going to talk about the random DragonBall z subtitles in the beginning?

What is the name of this honeypot

So once theyre in a honeypot, they cant get out?
nc -z 80 nc -z 22 nc -z 443 and so on would have done the job as well (also a little simpler imo)

What was he tryin to do ? and why that all dots went in lines ???
I'm so interested in hacking and protecting myself. Where do I even begin? Did you go to school for this?

I have question: the open port was at 65535 why does the attacker try 65536? Did the attacker just goof up, or what's the deal here?

i been thinking .. how about hacking india server and fried them .. then they will having hard time to scam us and plus .. they will getting hard time to get parts for the server ..
He wrote nmap in the command line. I really would have liked to see what he was really going to do. That was an inspiring, and scary, level of skills.
Your ssh port is 2222 default honeypot config file for ssh DEAD GIVEAWAY Its a honeypot

This guy definitely isn't "incredibly skilled" as some in this comment section tend to believe. The most you can say about this guy is he knew what he was doing and clearly understood he was in a honeypot.

LOL its just an echo command used to read whatever the person is trying to say... nothing hacked actually... Nice fooling around
What is skilled about this? He wrote some bash to Port scan the router?? Anyone can do that
