Russian Hackers Capture British Webcams

The United Kingdom threatens to close down a Russian website which is streaming images captured from webcams all over the world, including baby monitors, bedroom cameras and gym CCTV in UK. The website in question stream live feeds from households and businesses across the world, including a gym in Manchester, a bedroom in Birmingham and an office in Leicester.

The UK’s information commissioner urged the Russian authorities to take immediate action to close down the portal and promised to work with the Federal Trade Commission in the United States to close the website shall the Russian authorities fail to cooperate.

This online service simply highlighted the importance of setting strong passwords on devices having access to the worldwide web. As a result, the Information Commissioner’s office (ICO) has issued guidance on setting secure passwords and other measures to allow webcam owners to protect their privacy. Security researchers admit that consumers were too complacent about their online security.

Russian website, which has been operating for a few weeks now, has become the source of concern for security services all over the world. First its activity became known in Macau and Hong Kong, then in Australia, Canada and finally the United Kingdom.

The statistics shows that an estimated 350,000 webcams were sold in the country in 2013. The security experts warn that without password protection they could be vulnerable to hackers.

Some Russian-based online portal accesses the information by using the default login credentials (which can be freely obtained online) for thousands of cameras. In this way, they collect footage from various cameras used by businesses individuals, from CCTV networks to built-in cameras on baby monitors.

It is not a secret that many people use webcams to monitor their homes remotely while they are away. But while the ability to access footage remotely is the biggest selling point for the webcam, it is also potentially its biggest security weakness if not set up correctly. Logic is clear: if you can access your camera online, why can’t someone else do the same?

Some people believe that having to type in an obscure Internet address to access the camera ensures some level of protection, but they should know that it wouldn’t protect from the remote software used by intruders to scan the web for vulnerable devices. Indeed, most often, insecure cameras can be found simply using an online search engine.

raadden avatarIm guessing you can find the site by search for this topic on google, but this is not a new thing you can find insecure cams on google by using some of the search "hacks" but its usually boring security cams. These guys just put the known ones on a website and now its "news".. Technicly you are still breaking the law by watching them though. Ive heard same goes for using another persons facebook if they forget to logout. Apparently stupidity is someone elses problem <- this is what i think the stories should be about. And not like this topic just telling mainstream idiots what most other users allready know.
