The botnet detection program I started writing a year ago as part of my senior research has received a few stars and a fork on GitHub randomly and it seems rather odd. It's far from working and it makes me wonder how/why people stumbled across it.
Later in the day, I got a message from one of my friends saying he had seen a mention of it on reddit in /r/netsec. Pretty cool to know people were taking interest in something I started to build even it it's far from working and dead at this point. Makes me want to work on it again, I always love security stuff.
