Where I can find logs?

I get a task from my tutor. I have to find some “logs of hacker attack and check it with Kibana”. I don’t know where I can find that. Not only that, but I even don’t know what it supposed to look like. Are there some specialized resource?

I think, that it is a stupid question, but I can’t find something reasonable from Google search results.

Thank everyone for help.

P.S. I already installed Kibana and Elasticsearch. I can launch it and check some “sample logs”.



Logs can be found anywhere.

Their location depends on the service that created the logs, and the admin who might have decided to move the logs from default location.

So instead your question should be what services do i need to look for their logs.

I’d start with bash history for all users, ssh logs, any public facing service log, like http, ftp, anything else.

system logs, syslog, dmesg, etc…

Or I’m completely mistaken and you are just looking for sample logs to analyze?
