Internet exposure
This tool would greatly help companies with staff members who couldn't care less about the security of their devices. They should be made aware that anything that is exposed to the internet gets exposed to so many different risks. By showing them concrete results would better convince them on what to expect.

Re: Will this impact white hat researchers?
I think the good news is that it will help more organizations get on top of their devices and systems that are exposed on the public Net.

Monitor
Shodan Monitor as a tool for organizations that don't have the technical expertise or resources. It is important to monitor obviously. Tools provide help to speed up and make unmanageable manageable.

Shodan
Shodan sends an email when it finds an exposed device. Sound like another device we need to share information with. That is the main reason of the leaks.

Encryptions as a norm
Every other week there's an exposed database leaking information or a consumer device that was misconfigured and is now exposing private data. I think we should think encryptions at rest as a norm at this point.

Re: Will this impact white hat researchers?
if this will reduce white hat researchers' ability to discover and disclose exposed devices and data bases. Not really I would say. Less a lot their ability more about vulnerabilities.

Emails
a researcher discovered a MongoDB data instance with 150 gigabytes of data, including some 763 million email addresses, sitting on the public Net and in plain text. Obviously this is more common than what we think. At the same time email is not considered private anymore. Our emails are all over the places today.

Intriguing news, thanks for this Kelly. I can't help but wonder if this will reduce white hat researchers' ability to discover and disclose exposed devices and data bases.
