Distributed Port Scanner

Tonight I’ve added an interesting script to the head of this website. It’s javascript code that uses your browser to port scan the internet. It picks a random ip range and does a scan of 8080 (for no reason other than I thought that’d be more interesting than 80). It’s an experiment only. It very well may have some unwanted side affects, but it’s worth a try. If it returns interesting results I may utilize the distributed cpu time for other tasks. Hopefully something more original that hash cracking or as time consuming as Bitcoin mining, but it all depends on what unique idea I can come up with.

Update: The script is now disabled.
