SHODAN - Computer Search Engine


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.


Talk about a botnet builder....

Clearly, this type of service could be used for very bad purposes. Now the question is, if the community detects malware using this engine automatically....will SHODAN react to minimize this?

Search for servers reporting PHP 5.1.2

Search for server reporting Telnet....

Search for server running FTP on IIS 5.0

There is already some pretty active chatter on Twitter regarding this search engine (#shodan)
