Externally Accessible Controller

Would you trust your controller directly connected to the Internet?

We’ve been testing a JNIOR 410 on the network with only the following safeguards:

  1. Disable all accounts except the administrator ‘jnior’ account.
  2. Changed the ‘jnior’ account password.

There has been enough malicious activity attempting to login into the Telnet port that we have an application processing the access/log failed login reports and mapping the host locations. Try http://honeypot.integpg.com or https://honeypot.integpg.com if you prefer a secure connection.

Note that this unit is running the current Release Candidate for JANOS v1.6.2 as we have continued to enhance the unit’s ability to withstand life on the open network.

By the way there are a couple of publicly accessible web pages on this unit:
