I've been playing with the data from the Carna botnet output[1]. Basically someone scanned a massive portion of the Internet using broken routers as bots. There's some interesting finds in the data but analysing it is quite awkward given the size. Shodan is interesting but unless you take up a subscription is pretty limited.

Actually, more than 90% of the website's services are completely free! There are only 2 services that I charge for: HTTPS and Telnet. All of the new stuff for the past year I've added and made available for free. And with the Developer API you can easily access the data from within your own scripts.

Oh, and I've seen this in a few locations now but: NO SUBSCRIPTION REQUIRED. All of the stuff that's sold on the website is a one-time charge. There are no subscriptions on the website :)

That's interesting and I stand corrected, I was under the impression for some reason that subscriptions existed. As an aside, have you had a look at the Carna botnet output, and if so how does it compare to your data?
