Hi Folks,
this morning I discovered this amazing Computer Search Engine: SHODAN

SHODAN lets you find servers/ routers/ etc. by using the simple search bar up above. Most of the data in the index covers web servers at the moment, but there is some data on FTP, Telnet and SSH services as well. Let me know which services interest you the most and I’ll prioritize them in my scanning.

Lets say you want to find servers running the ‘Apache’ web daemon. A simple attempt would be to use:


How about finding only apache servers running version 2.2.3?

apache 2.2.3

You can also narrow down the results using the following search parameters:

country:2-letter country code
hostname:full or partial host name
net:IP range using CIDR notation (ex: )
port:21, 22, 23 or 80

For example: get all web (port:80) hosts running ‘apache’ in switzerland (country:CH) that also have ‘.ch’ in any of their domain names:

apache country:CH port:80 hostname:.ch

Just for the shake of hackers lets try some examples:

1) List of backdoor shell (try-it)
2) Bad Telnet Services (try-it)
3) List of old IIS 4.0, very bad… (try-it)

Now, I strongly believe in next few days a lot of systems will be compromised. With this service attackers will find vulnerable random services/servers, that is the manna for script kiddies.
One question comes out …. It will change the attack paradigm ? At the beginning of the attack’s history, attackers hit the target only for particular reasons such as: politics, personal, money and so forth. Now attackers may want to attack some targets only because it’s vulnerable to something, without any true reasons, only for the shake to attack something. This will be a huge paradigm shift.

  6. To be a upright lenient being is to procure a philanthropic of openness to the far-out, an skill to group uncertain things beyond your own control, that can front you to be shattered in unequivocally extreme circumstances pro which you were not to blame. That says something uncommonly impressive about the condition of the ethical compulsion: that it is based on a conviction in the fitful and on a willingness to be exposed; it's based on being more like a shop than like a jewel, something fairly dainty, but whose very particular handsomeness is inseparable from that fragility.

  7. Hello.

    A banks is a financial institution that accepts deposits and channels those deposits into lending activities. Bank primarily provide financial services to customers while enriching investors. Government restrictions on financial activities by bank vary over time and location. Banks are important players in financial markets and offer services such as investment funds and loans. In some countries such as Germany, banks have historically owned major stakes in industrial corporations while in other countries such as the United States bank are prohibited from owning non-financial companies. In Japan, banks are usually the nexus of a cross-share holding entity known as the keiretsu. In France, bancassurance is prevalent, as most banks offer insurance services (and now real estate services) to their clients.

    The level of government regulation of the banking industry varies widely, with countries such as Iceland, having relatively light regulation of the banking sector, and countries such as China having a wide variety of regulations but no systematic process that can be followed typical of a communist system.[url=http://projectcontrol.v3host.nl]CLICK HERE[/url]
