So what I suspect happened is this

it might still be registred to you via shadowservers.org
OR another org
3. The abuse email they sent the report to is not in
the whois of that
it might be becuase it shows it to belong to you via shadowservers.org
4. The DNS name used in the report is not the reverse
PTR of that IP.
Nor does the forward DNS point to that IP.
5. The DNS name points to a host in my network but that host is
definitively not a IoT device which has any kind of default password.
Its a solid Linux machine with a up to date distribution with 2
usernames only on it with very secure passwords and only one specific
application running which doesn't talk to outside my network at all.
If that machine would have gotten hacked, it would surprise me very
much. At least I have found nothing unusual on that IP. No unexpected
network activity, CPU load, processes etc.
it looks to me like there is something going wrong with
and any other report like this. seems they just
forwarded it without fact checking, which, is kinda not their job either
(would swamp them massively I guess)
so yeah, guess you'd have to ask which source the report came from?
