|say, another thought, there's a "Snort" rule that appears to alert if a Juniper Network backdoor password attempt was made. (https://gist.github.com/fox-srt/ca94b350f2a91bd8ed3f) does that mean that, with all these port 23 hits happening, that the Juniper backdoor could have been found years ago by pretty much anyone on the Internet who just monitored the actual packets they were being probed with? if any of them were actually such attempts. maybe they'd have to use it to do some scanning themselves to find what it was for though. does anyone do that?
