Niels Provos (provos citi umich edu)
after the bad news, some good news. I am happy to announce the
release of Honeyd 1.5.
This version contains the following new features:
* Statistics Collector: A daemon that can process netflow-like
information exported by several Honeyd instances and do computations
on the data - see live data.
* Improved Subsystems: Improved support for subsystems permits
running more complicated UNIX applications like mwcollect as a
subsystem for Honeyd.
* Proxy and SMTP subsystems: Example subsystems to simulate open
proxies and mail relays. These subsystems are written with performance
in mind and have no problem in keeping up with a busy network.

It also contains an important security fix to make remote detection
more difficult. The security advisory plus patch can be found at:
If you have configured Honeyd to check for security fixes, you will
see a security warning and a link to the advisory in the integrated
