With a decent enought connection (about 10GBits) you can scan the entire
reachable Internet withing about 30 Minutes to check for the openess of
one port. (See the programm masscan.)

And there are bots, lots of bots who also tirelessly scan the whole IPv4
range for open SSH-, SMTP-, POP3-, IMAP- and HTTP-Ports.

I for example have blacklisted (from the Chinanet AS)
because for at least the last 7 years there have nothing but port scans
been comming from that network.


Sigmentation fault. Core dumped.
