Russian Bots and Port 23

So, it's 5am and I am listening to JRE whilst playing OpenTTD. Because you know, that's how you do.

JRE #1157 is Shooter Jennings (a country & rock musician) and I was pretty amazed to hear him talk about Chinese hosts port-scanning his BBS.

Of course he's conflating Shodan-esque activities and "political interference", but I find it weirdly pleasant when seemingly non-nerdy people reveal their nerdiness.
