Because I can get full IPv6 support now from my home office (Comcast did this right) I have started to bring up cloud servers with no IPv4 addresses -- only IPv6. I use a static address and create a DNS AAAA record for each of them.
I have noticed that on these VMs seem to get absolutely no bot attack activity. The fail2ban script I have running (a must if you have an SSH server on a standard port at an IPv4 address) it never sees anything in the log to take action on.
These days I get suspicious if there aren't any attacks on a publicly routable IP device. So I want to know:
Am I missing something? Are bots not able to find IPv6 addresses simply because they are obscure?
Would my AAAA records ever be visible to the outside world to give the attackers something to add to their lists?
Will this situation change?
