  • Using VMWARE

    Just posting this out.

    I have been running an experiement on using Vmware as a ghost system.

    Here is what I have been doing.

    I load up vmware and install windows 2000 server unpatched
    for the session. I then assign a public IP to the session.

    But on the same system I am running a live web server and DNS server with NAT.

    I have seen the windows 2000 server get owned at least 3 times a week. But I also have a script that will restart a fresh session if it crashes.

    So far this has been a really good deterant from my other systems.
    I have noticed that my webserver and DNS server have reduced in the amount of scans and attempts to access it.

    Just wondering if anyone else has tried this.
    Can we reboot the internet

    nope, never tried that specifically. I use Chroot and UML which *kinda* does the same thing (along the same lines of what you're trying to do).

      I have run multiple VM's with real world IP's while hiding my main box by Nating behind their real world Ip's life is good...
