Shodan: The scariest search engine on the Internet – Apr. 8, 2013

"When people don’t see stuff on Google, they think no one can find it. That’s not true." That’s according to John Matherly, creator of Shodan, the scariest search engine on the Internet. Unlike Google (GOOG, Fortune 500), 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.
