Counter-Botnetting: Honeypot @ Home

Here’s an idea for aspiring anti-botnet researchers:

Hook up with someone like the OpenBox creators or VMware and perhaps the guys at Malware Bytes.¬†Create some Virtual Machine environments with all the security ripped out, that can be distributed with the intent of remotely (and deliberately) getting botnetted “in the wild”, but under controlled circumstances while running like one of those “@ Home” applications on volunteer systems.
