I Know You Need New Toner | Shodan Blog
Jared Sperli stashed this in security
The first Shodan search that I remember people sharing like wildfire on Twitter was for an HP LaserJet printer. In the early days of Shodan, before all the SCADA devices came to light, the majority of searches were for consumer devices such as printers, routers and webcams (the latter are still widely popular). Inspired by a cool new tool from @info_dox I decided to start crawling the Internet specifically for printers using the Printer Job Language protocol on port 9100. Obviously there aren’t as many of these devices out there as web servers, but within a few hours I had gathered enough to start analyzing the data and see what sort of cool stuff I can learn.
