I believe I read once they find out your OS type,
etc... they store it within internal databases...
which will get updated via a new REAL scan if they get
enough requests to your domain. I have got a few scans
from the service sourced from a few ips from the same
subnet and then plugged the /24 into my firewall,.
This was two days ago, the service still shows the
information. I had also checked a few other domains
that is hosted on the same machine that I didnt check
before the firewall and the information came back
out. Hope this helps.
