Webcams warning
« on: November 20, 2014, 14:42 »
The public is being warned about a website containing thousands of live feeds to baby monitors, stand-alone webcams and CCTV systems.

Data watchdogs across the world have drawn attention to the Russian-based site, which broadcasts footage from systems using either default passwords or no log-in codes at all.

The site lists streams from more than 250 countries and other territories.

It currently provides 500 feeds from the UK alone.

I heard this includes webcams built into TV sets.  I suspect the owners of the rogue website will be very bored for most of the time.   :)x
