LowEndBox - Cheap VPS, Hosting and Dedicated Server Deals

ALMOST GONE: Save 90% on Shodan.io! Only $5 Lifetime!

shodan.ioLowEndTalk member @Chuck alerted the community to a terrific deal: you can get a full access lifetime membership for Shodan.io for only $5 – that’s 90% off the list price!

However the deal expires at midnight GMT, so as of this writing you’ve got about 8 hours to get in on it.

If you don’t know what Shodan is, I’ll let them explain it:

Shodan is a search engine for Internet-connected devices. Web search engines, such as Google and Bing, are great for finding websites. But what if you’re interested in measuring which countries are becoming more connected? Or if you want to know which version of Microsoft IIS is the most popular? Or you want to find the control servers for malware? Maybe a new vulnerability came out and you want to see how many hosts it could affect? Traditional web search engines don’t let you answer those questions.

In other words, it’s Google but you’re searching for routers, baby monitors, and industrial control equipment.

As with any security tool, you can use it for good or evil.  Some will use it to find unprotected systems they can hack into.  Others will use it to make sure their systems are not unprotected.

There’s an interesting example of its use in the LET thread from @stevewatson301.
