Re: [Full-disclosure] SSH scans, i caught one



Glancing through the OpenWRT platform list, it seems to be about 50/50
between ARM and MIPS (with a few other strange architectures in there).
The only router I've got to hand to check is a Belkin, which reports to
be MIPS based.

a whole network's traffic passing through, and it's extremely hard to

Most homerouters I've seen are ARM, I actually never had a MIPS :)
Guess its time to setup Qemu-MIPS to see what it does exactly.

And maybe name it? If it's not a already known botnet that is.
