Ghost USB Honeypot – USB Malware VIdeo

Ghost is a honeypot for malware that spreads via USB storage devices. It detects infections with such malware without the need of any further information.The honeypot was first developed for a bachelor thesis at Bonn University in Germany. Now development is continued by the same developer within the Honeynet Project.





Ghost is a honeypot for USB malware. It is capable of capturing malware that propagates via USB storage devices without any further knowledge. This is done by emulating a USB thumb drive and tricking malware into infecting the emulated device. Due to the fact that a machine must be infected in order for the virtual device to detect the malware, the honeypot is designed to run on Windows systems, which are mainly targeted by malware at the moment.


Currently, Ghost only supports Windows XP and is in an early development stage, although its concept has been shown to work well, and the code is stable. If Ghost detects an infection, then it will currently only report that the machine is possibly infected, without including any additional information.
