The State of Telnet on the Internet – My Findings

This is my first in, I hope, a series of posts about the ‘state of things on the internet’ along with my findings and anything interesting I may have come across along the way.

This post will be about the state of Telnet (Port 23) on the internet from the perspective of a single internet-scanning host (read more in the methodologies section below). I’ll be going through some statistics including: top countries, top brands and/or firmware and lastly, an analysis on banner responses.
