3.22.2018 Bullguard has a free online scanner that will scan your network edge to see if your IOT toaster is reachable from the outside. If so, you can bet has already grabbed its banner. Speaking of which, if anyone has a pcap file for an IOT toaster, I would love to get my hands on it! Thanks. "Security Planner is an easy-to-use guide with expert-reviewed advice for staying safer online. It provides recommendations on implementing basic online practices, like enabling two-factor authentication on important accounts, making sure software stays updated, and using encrypted chats to protect private communications. More advanced users can receive advice on where to go for more help." This site interactively guides the user through a few questions related to the technologies used, the user's security concerns, and the user's desire for more specific information related to security. It then provides a list of general recommendations along with more detailed information should the user want to dig further. Its very "approachable" and provides good top level recommendations for users who may not be very technically savvy. AnyRun is an online malware sandbox where you can open files, urls, code, etc and run these inside of a virtual machine to see what happens. They have a limited free version which gives you a full two minutes to play in a somewhat limited but useful VM. It's come in handy a few times for me when I wanted to explode something safely off of my network.
