SHODAN, The Banner Grabbing Search Engine

SHODAN is an interesting search service, this is a banner grabbing search service that could reveal some useful information for interested people. SHODAN is scanning the internet on specific ports and provide the scan results in a searchable way.

I did a simple search using SIP keywork, and easily got web access to lots of voip devices on the internet. The IP ranges I checked randomly are all ADSL ranges, poor end-users!

In Egypt more than 200 Cisco routers have web admin interface enabled, and exposed publicly.

The database has more than 11K IPs in Egypt, 3K IPs in UAE, and 8K IPs in Saudi Arabia.

Shodan queries samples are here and here
Shodan Firefox addon is available here.
