Thousands more webcams unprotected are collected every week and images from hacked devices are displayed online this way. Hackers’ website is surveilling thousands of victims doing a profound violation of privacy. Nearly 4,600 locations in the U.S., more than 2,000 French webcams, 1,576 Dutch cams, 870 Japanese and 584 British webcams were captured at this time. Most people still do not know. “The website, which is based in Russia, accesses the information by using the default login credentials, which are freely available online, for thousands of cameras,” the United Kingdom’s Information Commissioner’s Office said in a statement. In order to find exposed cameras, an attacker can simply use an online search engine. And this is an automated action. Foscam, Hikivision, Panasonic, IPCamera and Linksys are the most important webcam brands targeted. Such cameras allow remote access by default. The solution to stop this is to have a good password , using a mix of letters, numbers, and capital letters, for the camera and its software.
