Forum Thread: Examining a *.Bin File

Examining a *.Bin File

Hi Guys,

First post. Hope you are all well.

I set up a kippo honeypot a few days ago and got my first bite earlier today. The attacker immediately issued a wget command and downloaded a file called network.bin.

I was wondering what methods you would suggest in examining this file further? Is it possible to read the code safely and establish the purpose of the file?

Interestingly the attacker did not execute the file.

Thanks in advance,

Step 1:
