In previous work, the authors introduced a bait injection system designed to delude and detect crimeware by forcing it to reveal itself during the exploitation of monitored information. Although effective as a technique, the original system was practically limited, as it was implemented in a personal VM environment. In this paper, the authors extend the system by applying it to thin-client to demonstrate how the approach can be used in a large-scale deployment. Adapting the system to such an environment revealed a number of challenging issues, such as scalability, portability, and choice of physical communication means.
