Is Your Camera Safe?

Thousands of commercial and personal IP-based cameras are now available for viewing; a visit to the cam streaming site insecam.com might be worth your while, as yours may be one of the compromised online cameras over 152 countries. Businesses and homes are now open for public viewing, including offices, shops, restaurants, swimming pools, backyards, kitchens and bedrooms.

Majority of compromised cameras are exposed by using the default username and password, granting the access to these online cameras nearly effortless. As simple as it may seem, changing the default password of the online camera web-service would address this exploit.

A wide variety of camera access software is available, and can easily turn your computer webcam into an online camera. Qihoo’s 360 Total Security offers Webcam protection that ensures only authorized software may be granted with access, putting you in total control of your camera at every moment.
