This story should scare everyone. Video cameras in the home are now very popular. They are used for many purposes, including watching sleeping children, kitchens, living rooms, garages, front gardens, back gardens, marijuana plantations, swimming pools, and much more. the problem is that most of these devices offer no security at all. Hackers or anyone else often can also see what is going on in your home. There’s even a search engine called Shodan that will find streaming video cameras for you, allowing you to become a Peeping Tom inside someone else’s home.
The problem should be easy to fix. Security fixes with passwords and encryption could be added to these webcams at a modest increase in price. The problem is that manufacturers don’t want to increase any prices in this highly-competitive marketplace.
Who is watching your children?
