Awesome Shodan Search Queries Awesome

Over time, I've collected an assortment of interesting, funny, and depressing search queries to plug into Shodan, the (literal) internet search engine. Some return facepalm-inducing results, while others return serious and/or ancient vulnerabilities in the wild.


Most search filters require a Shodan account.

You can assume these queries only return unsecured/open instances when possible. For your own legal benefit, do not attempt to login (even with default passwords) if they aren't! Narrow down results by adding filters like country:US or org:"Harvard University" or hostname:"nasa.gov" to the end.

The world and its devices are quickly becoming more connected through the shiny new Internet of Things Sh*t — and exponentially more dangerous as a result. To that end, I hope this list spreads awareness (and, quite frankly, pant-wetting fear) rather than harm.

And as always, discover and disclose responsibly! 🤓
