Re: MSF and Mobile
So the short answer is probably not a big issue for mobile at this point. As far as I know, Shodan searches only for IP addresses, finding the folks who were negligent in adding protections. Mobile only really has an IP when it connects to a router for wifi connectivity. Android, arguably the largest open source project, would probably have quite a number of exploits that could be hit, but I'm not sure that Autosploit would really know how to find the devices, since it is dependent on Shodan for building its target list. I hope that this makes sense. I'll of course be following this story to see how it evolves.

Re: Example
At this point, it's hard to tell which projects it will impact most, but we can assume that the most popular ones will be most affected since there are more targets to hit with this wide net approach. For example, a lot of IoT type devices (which are basically small servers) are based on Linux-based toolkits and are rarely if ever patched. What will be interesting to follow is whether this leads to more folks getting on top of their patching ops, although this is unlikely to make it to the airwaves.

MSF and Mobile
Will this work for mobile devices as well? Since MSF can hack Android on Kali?
