How to find vulnerable ftp servers
by DeezNutz420 - March 03, 2016 at 08:06 AM
This method is for finding open FTP servers with no password.

Step one:
Register on This is what you will use to look for your victims.

Step two:
Download FileZilla or another FTP client. This is what you will use to connect.
(Recommended: VPN or proxy.)

Step three:
Open shodan and search any of the following:
RT-AC66R, RT-AC66U, RT-N66R, RT-N66U, RT-AC56U, RT-N56R, RT-N56U, RT-N14U, RT-N16, and RT-N16R AND the word 'suc cess' (No space, added because succ emote) 

Step quatro:
You should now have a list of IPs with anonymous FTP enabled by default.
Paste one of these IPs into your FTP client of choice and hit connect. No username or password required Smile

How does this work?
Well to put it simply:

John got a new router. 
John plugged in hid router and used it like a regular fucking router. 
John got the bright idea to plug his external hard drive with his backup of his bank details and credit cards into his router via USB so he could access the files on his PC and laptop at the same time. 
What John didn't know was that he had an Asus RT-N66U router. 
When he plugged in that external hard drive, he made an anonymous FTP server with NO PASSWORD that can be used by anyone on the internet. 
John then got his identity stolen by multiple RF members and all his files were replaced with memes and horse p o r n.

Anyway, hope you enjoy. Don't do this tho its illegal and stuff so yeah.

i wanted to do some ip cams but i forgot what shodan was called

You don't even need to download an ftp client.
Chrome, Firefox and even Internet Explorer have ftp capabilities, just type in ftp://<ip-address or url>.
If you're on Windows you can also type ftp <ip/url> in cmd, as username you use "anonymous" and as password you have to give them an e-mail address which only identifies as an e-mail address by the character '@'. So you can just type in '@' as password and you're in.
Type help to see all commands for the windows ftp-client and you're good to go.

But personal note here, this would usually hold no purpose because if you actually want some important information
But I guess this could be fun to mess around with...
Anyway, nice find
Wesome Method, Many thanks
