after the weekend i spend a few hours for a journey trough my logfiles from the weekend. So i detect one IP which scan us very often and try to connect to ssh. Not unusual so far... normally i do an nmap run, look on the machine and forget it.

But This:

Starting nmap 3.48 ( http://www.insecure.org/nmap/ ) at 2004-03-15 18:30 CET
Interesting ports on xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx:
(The 1007 ports scanned but not shown below are in state: closed)
21/tcp  open     ftp?
22/tcp  open     ssh          SSH 1.2.33 (protocol 1.5)
23/tcp  open     telnet       Linux telnetd
25/tcp  open     smtp         Sendmail smtpd 8.11.6/8.11.0
53/tcp  open     domain       ISC Bind 8.2.2-P5
79/tcp  open     finger       Linux fingerd
80/tcp  open     http         Apache httpd 1.3.23 ((Unix) PHP/4.1.2)
109/tcp open     pop-2?
110/tcp open     pop3
135/tcp filtered msrpc
139/tcp filtered netbios-ssn
143/tcp open     imap?
445/tcp filtered microsoft-ds
513/tcp open     login?
514/tcp open     shell?
587/tcp open     smtp         Sendmail 8.11.6/8.11.0
707/tcp filtered unknown

Could THIS be real??? Or is it a honeypot? SSH in a version older than me, telnet online, finger talks to the whole world and so on.... just a question because i have never seen somewhat... open... in the wild before. Somewhere in Korea...
