This paper aims at showing the usefulness of simple honeypots to obtain data that can be used to derive analytical models of the attack processes present on the Internet. Built upon an environment which has been deployed for 18 months, we provide gures and analyses that enable us to better understand how attacks are carried out in the wild. Key contributions of this paper include a critical review of geographical information provided by NetGeo, a study of the aftermath of the Deloder worm and an in-depth analysis of the interaction between the populations of compromised machines devoted to scan the Internet and the ones in charge of actually running the attacks.
