Vulnerabilitiy Analysis Research Project

Dear visitor,

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

For more information on our research, please have a look at our research results that we presented at the NDSS'14 conference in Feb '14. We presented further research results at the USENIX Security '14 conference and the USENIX Workshop on Offensive Technologies (WOOT'14) in Aug '14.

If our connections disturb you in any way, please feel free to send us a notice and we can exclude your netrange from our research. However, please note that we share our discoveries 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 analysis you will be able to receive such notices.

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