Wow. I just had a new comment on my 2012 article "Why Not Use Port Knocking" https://bsdly.blogspot.com/2012/04/why-not-use-port-knocking.html, essentially saying "YOU'RE WRONG!!!". Oh, the effort they put in.
I take this as early warning .cn is worse off than announced, possibly early second wave of #covid19:
Apr 2 20:53:32 skapet sshd: Failed password for root from 126.96.36.199 port 40720 ssh2
Apr 2 21:00:21 skapet sshd: Failed password for invalid user 0 from 188.8.131.52 port 40443 ssh2
Apr 2 22:39:58 skapet sshd: Failed password for root from 184.108.40.206 port 52060 ssh2
hint: several thousand attempts would have been expeced

Possibly #covid19 related, there were no new usernames turning up from ssh password guessers during the first 11 days of this month. Now we've gone 2 days without new made up email return addresses turning up. That's all from this little weird corner of the Internet.
I hear colleagues worrying about spamvertized #COVID19 based scams appearing. But I'm not seeing them so far. In fact there has been no noticeable upware change in the number of entries in any of the badness lists we maintain (see https://bsdly.blogspot.com/2018/08/badness-enumerated-by-robots.html for a condensed summary).
My logs indicate that China is recovering from #covid19. The ssh password guessers are coming back and making up new imaginary friends again after a hiatus of surprisingly many days.
