Nope, this doesn't work any more. Shodan checks all ports (so any attackers using data from Shodan already know which ports you have open), and tools like masscan (https://github.com/robertdavidgraham/masscan) let you portscan the entire IPv4 address space in less than 10 minutes.
Private server intruded
The discord user at the time used the tool "Masscan" to scan every 25565 port on the internet, he claims he was able to get the entire internet scanned in just a few minutes with a 512MB buyvm slice.
PSA: Masscan has changed his IP. Please block the new one on your firewall! Its likely our vps reporting worked.

Masscan is a tool for scanning large segments of the internet for open ports. I've used it previously and it's not an inherently malicious tool.
Recommended high speed port scanner?

It's likely they were also hitting NAT limits of their firewall, as evidenced by their other devices taking a performance hit. They'd likely see a lot of improvement if they directly connected to the internet, just like all those millions of compromised routers and firewall that make up so many botnets already do. Also, if you scan naïvely and willy-nilly then you are going to get blocklisted and throttled. This has been well established for years. Tools like massscan have flags to use exclude files to use to skip the known troublesome areas.
