Messing with Script Kiddies

Starting the first week in January, I started noticing my personal server getting pounded with requests looking for roundcube or mantis installs on my system. After doing a bit of research at the Internet Storm Center I realized it was a new vulneribility in these programs and these script kiddies were just scanning servers for the existance of these specific directories.   In the last couple weeks I have been scanned at least 25 times… so I decided to have a little fun with the script kiddies.  Now instead of getting an error 404 page, they will get… well, here is the code.  I’m sure you’ll see where their scripted scanners will be getting sent to 🙂
