There is no shortage of research releases at the RSA 2013 security conference. Yet one piece of research stands alone, above all others by virtue of the sheer audacity of the undertaking. HD Moore, celebrated hacker, founder of the open source Metasploit framework and CISO at Rapid7, scanned the *entire* Internet in an effort to find security flaws.
It’s a truism that if you go looking for trouble, you will find it and that’s precisely what Moore found. Speaking in a packed RSA session Moore noted that he has been scanning the entire IPv4 address space for the last year.
