Well yes, there are a bunch of ways to be serious about what im doing
But im also busy and doing a lot of real work. So, I cant set that all up yet. I need to really make a FreeBSD ( my fav ) image and use that on the LAN side to really look at whats happening and to real pcapture.
So im just doing it for fun.. Right now im just trying to get infected.. Its just sorta casual fun..
It does not *appear* to be compromised yet and iver got 24 hrs on it now. ZILLIONS of SSH bruteforce attacks by obviously different bot nets tho. I have not left any user name defaults open yet.
There is something a bit suspicions. The "Check System" now goes 1%, never advances to more then 1% and comes back immd and says its ok. Thats kinda weird as normally it takes a few seconds and you see it progress in %. CPU is spiking a bit higher at 4-5% where before it was always 0-1%. Im also lost some available RAM.. So MAYBE its been compromised. Not sure yet, and tonight I cant go check...
I will keep things posted here. Im going to be really busy and at times out of town in the next 2 weeks. But rest assured its still sitting there and im still letting it collect malware..
So far im impressed. Maybe VPNfilter requires a default username/password. Nothing so far seems to have had a effect.
