The newly established Client Honeynet Project and Victoria University of Wellington, NZ are very excited to announce the major release of our high interaction client honeypot Capture-HPC, version 2.0. There are many awesome features as part of this release:

* support for any client application that is http protocol aware (for example, Microsoft Excel)

* ability to automatically collect malware

* ability to automatically collect network traffic on the client

* ability to push exclusion lists from the Capture Server to the Capture Client

* improved control of Internet Explorer: obtain html error codes; specify visitation delay AFTER page has been retrieved; retry visitation of URLs in case of time outs or network errors

* support for plug-in architecture, that allows to create fine grained control of clients (for example, as provided for Internet Explorer), but also allows for integration of client applications that require complex interactions to retrieve content from the web ( e.g. Safari is such an application. It doesn't allow retrieval of web content by passing the URL as a parameter)

* enhancement to file monitor to monitor file deletions

* communication between Capture Client and Server has been converted to XML. This allows one to easily write custom Capture Servers that utilize the existing Capture Client.

* added installer/uninstaller for the Capture Client

* improved reporting

* improved stability

* improved performance

* numerous bug fixes

The tool and the source code are available from https://www.client-honeynet.org/creleases.html . It is distributed under the GNU General Public License v2.
