[Honeywall] Problems with sebek on windows

Have you tried a remote connection to your windows box?  There are a
lot of packets that fly on the wire that are not necessarily a result
of keystrokes.

If you log on to the honeywall, and get on mysql.

mysql> use hflow
mysql> select count(*) from sys_read;
mysql> select count(*) from sys_socket;
mysql> select count(*) from process;
mysql> select count(*) from sys_open;

What do you see?

The sys_read table is the one that will contain keystrokes.  This even
includes ssh banners that are sent during initial negotiations and
that is why an ssh brute force attack slows down the sebek analysis

Will get time to take a closer look soon hopefully.... need to find a
place to live and stop living out of a hotel room ;)
