Scan of the Month challenge #21
On the evening of Feb 15th, three different members of the Honeynet Research Alliance received a flurry of strange UDP packets, that at first look seemed to have no apparent purpose. This month's Scan of the Month challenge is to understand the purpose of these packets. Using the Snort binary capture of one of the Honeynets, answer the following questions. The Honeynet that is scanned is on the 172.16.1.0/24 network. Also, keep in mind these packets were recorded on a system in the GMT timezone. When reviewing this binary capture on your system, it may convert the times of the packet captures to the local timezone of your system.
All submissions are due no later then 22:00 GMT, Friday, 21 June. Results will be released Friday, 28 June.
