Another scary update/twist on webcams being hacked to spy on kids/etc and a tip for how to help prevent it.

“Whether it’s in your bedroom or your bathroom, voyeurs are able to secretly watch you through your webcam if you haven’t got the right security settings.

Now Shodan, a search engine for the Internet of Things, has launched a new section that lets users easily browse webcams without a password.

It includes feeds from childrens’ bedrooms, kitchens, living rooms marijuana plantations, schools and even the back rooms of banks.

The site aims to raise awareness of how easily it is to hack into webcams, as well as highlight how little is being done to address the issue.”
