Renowned researcher and founder of the Metasploit Project, HD Moore, has launched a new network scanning project called Sonar. The aim of the project is to make manufacturers aware of vulnerabilities in their solutions and encourage them to facilitate defense against these vulnerabilities. Also, the project aims to raise security awareness amongst device users. The project hopes to encourage researchers around the world to collaborate and share information about vulnerabilities they found.

HD Moore is known for carrying out a large number of scans on public infrastructure. He explains how manufacturers are still slow to carry out the repairs of vulnerabilities. A large number of network devices is still vulnerable and is expected to remain so for the foreseeable future. This is one of the reasons for launching project Sonar.
