Interesting piece about Shodan computer search engine: The Terrifying Search Engine That Finds Internet-Connected Cameras, Traffic Lights, Medical Devices, Baby Monitors And Power Plants - Forbes.

Great remark by John Matherly, the maker of Shodan:
“I don’t consider my search engine scary,” “It’s scary that there are power plants connected to the Internet.”
Indeed. I used Shodan to search for the http server identifier specific to Samsung Smart TVs: Server: Swift1.0 and there are indeed several Samsung Smart TVs reachable from the big bad Internet.
