SYNful Knock Scanning Project

On 15 September 2015, FireEye published information about potentially compromised Cisco routers under the name SYNful Knock. As soon as Shadowserver became aware of these potential compromises, Shadowserver and Cisco worked together and cooperated to scan the internet to detect these affected routers to allow a more accurate notification of the affected end-users. We are pleased to partner with Cisco on its response to SYNful Knock. Cisco supported the initial public disclosure of this malware and has created an Event Response Page for its customers.

Methodology

We are querying all computers with routable IPv4 addresses that are not firewalled from the internet on port 80/tcp with a specifically crafted SYN packet and capturing the SYNACK response. We intend no harm, but if we are causing problems, please contact us at: dnsscan [at] shadowserver [dot] org.

Whitelisting

To be removed from this set of scanning you will need to send an email to dnsscan [at] shadowserver [dot] org with the specific CIDR's that you would like to have removed. You will have to be the verifiable owner of these CIDR's and be able to prove that fact. Any address space that is whitelisted will be publicly available here: https://synfulscan.shadowserver.org/exclude.html
