    IPv4 Census Map

    Because the Internet Census had so many different vantage points — 420,000 in total — it offered a unique look at the computers on many different networks. And it showed that FinFisher servers were running in 11 new countries including Austria, Pakistan and South Africa.

    But there was a problem. The Internet Census was illegal. Somebody — nobody knows exactly who — had built a network of hacked computers called the Carna botnet to generate the data. According to a remarkable academic paper the hacker published with his census, he had taken steps to minimize his botnet’s harm. He installed it mostly on routers and set-top boxes and says he took steps to make sure that it didn’t hog system resources.

    ...

    This Internet Census data was great because it probed corners of the internet that other network mapping projects hadn’t seen. But it was also tainted because Carna was installed on hundreds of thousands of machines without the consent of the people who actually owned these machines.

    And today, not everyone is sure that the data it compiled should be used, at least in the academic community of researchers who map out the internet. “It seems like there’s a lot of conflict within the community about whether it’s right to use this data because it was gathered in a way that was unethical,” says Phillipa Gill, a postdoctoral fellow at The Citizen Lab, a University of Toronto sponsored effort to track state-sponsored uses of malicious software.
