Does anyone have experience using Shodan (the dark Google) search?
 
I just saw this on the news a few minutes ago. I haven't tried it yet but it seems to have possibilities.

"Shodan: The scariest search engine on the Internet"

Unlike Google, which crawls the Web looking for websites, Shodan navigates the Internet's back channels. It's a kind of "dark" Google, looking for the servers, webcams, printers, routers and all the other stuff that is connected to and makes up the Internet.

Shodan runs 24/7 and collects information on about 500 million connected devices and services each month.

It's stunning what can be found with a simple search on Shodan. Countless traffic lights, security cameras, home automation devices and heating systems are connected to the Internet and easy to spot.

Shodan searchers have found control systems for a water park, a gas station, a hotel wine cooler and a crematorium. Cybersecurity researchers have even located command and control systems for nuclear power plants and a particle-accelerating cyclotron by using Shodan.

What's really noteworthy about Shodan's ability to find all of this -- and what makes Shodan so scary -- is that very few of those devices have any kind of security built into them.

"You can log into just about half of the Internet with a default password," said HD Moore, chief security officer of Rapid 7, who operates a private version of a Shodan-like database for clients. "It's a massive security failure."

I've only read about it, but never interacted with it.

I'm actually not too bothered by things like this. I know I should be, but I guess in today's world, nothing really surprises me anymore when it comes to what technology can and cant do.

you really need to know what you're looking at to do anything with the information there. It's probably a bit dangerous, but nothing anyone should be majorly worried about.
