So I found some articles about the business of gathering threat intelligence from the darkweb. It would be a really cool weekend project to spin up a VPS in some random country, install monitoring software, submit it to be a Tor exit node, and hopefully just watch the packets fly.
That's a super cool idea. I might make a tutorial on that...
Here are some instructions to configuring a tor relay https://www.torproject.org/docs/tor-relay-debian.html.en
Oi good idea! I thought about something similar, except my idea was to monitor a local (free) wifi network, and see what type of Malware passed through it. Not too similar yet it beckons the idea.
How would you go about that? You have two options, ARP MITM, damn slow and noisy, or, physically connect your laptop to a switch in the place.
Most devices in coffee shops and such are mobile devices, perhaps a school would be a decent location?
I think @Cromical has packet sniffing in mind...
Packet sniffing is what this post is about @oaktree.
@airth, obviously, but I think @pry0cc misunderstood what @Cromical said, so I thought I could try and clear things up.
Ah yes, that's what I had in mind. Thanks for clearing things up!
