This is a article i would like everyone of us who are interested in
detecting the latest threats and Honeypots related stuff should read
this ===>

The Honeypot Incident ? How strong is your UF (Reversing FU)
https://www.corelan.be/index.php/2011/01/31/the-honeypot-incident-how-st
rong-is-your-uf-reversing-fu/

The article deeply explains all the relevant details and an example
scenario showing  a intrusion . The system was completely rooted.The
article also explains the techniques by which the virtual machines are
detected and the complete code is altered and the program starts
behaving differently to avoid reversing . There are a lot of custom
patches and honeypots available online u can kick start with a simple
one and apply your apps that u wish to watch on it .If there is
something u cannot understand or you wish to query u can freely ask me
i have been doing this stuff for a long time . Set up low-interaction
honeypot such as nepenthes, dionaea, or mwcollectd ==>
http://code.mwcollect.org/
And start researching them initially the task may seem a little
confusing but later u'll love it . I recommend start with nepenthes .
Python if u know will help u a lot .

Thank You
