mwcollect is an easy solution to collect worms and other autonomous spreading malware in a non-native environment like FreeBSD or Linux.
The first versions were used to collect binaries for botnet monitoring and bots are still what mwcollect is mostly used for collecting.
Some people consider it a next generation honeypot, however that comparison often leads to the misunderstanding that computers running mwcollect can actually be infected with the malware - that is not the case!
What's New in This Release:
· This release adds a submit-gotek submission module, fixes some bugs in the timeout code, and builds cleanly under FreeBSD.
