'mwcollect' collects worm-like malware in a non-native environment. The first versions collected binaries for botnet monitoring, and bots are still what it is mostly collecting. Some people consider it a next generation honeypot; however, that comparison often leads to the misunderstanding that computers running mwcollect can actually be infected with the malware, which is not the case.
