Scan Research Project

Dear visitor,

You landed on this page most likely because you noticed that this particular host is scanning the Internet. We, the Research Group for System Security at Saarland University, Germany - intentionally run these scans to get an overview of servers that can be abused, e.g., for amplification DDoS attacks or are vulnerable for other reasons.

If our scans disturb you in any way, please feel free to send us a notice and we can exclude your netrange from our scans. However, please note that we share our scan results with security teams (such as CERTs or ShadowServer). This helps to notify operators of insecure servers/hosts. Only if your netrange is not excluded from the scans you will be able to receive such notices.

Thank you for your understanding. In case you have any questions, please contact us:
