Saw this article today and its quite interesting.
A quick search of the string “1760468715” shows there are quite a few websites that have been compromised.
This is quite a clever but old technique that is referred to as Dotless IP’s. A google search will find quite a few results, with several posts from around 15 or so years ago.
In order to work out the IP address the value represents you can perform a fairly straight forward calculation.
If you had the IP address 172.16.4.8
You can calculate this as follows
172 * 16777216 = 2885681152
16 * 65536 = 1048576
4 * 256 = 1024
8 * 1 = 8
Add the bold figures up.
So if you were to enter this address in your browser http://2886730760
It would attempt to take you to 172.16.4.8
Just another way of hiding in plain sight.
