If you own a webcam, baby monitor, or even a home security camera, you may need to change your password. A website has been discovered, exposing live feeds of hundreds of thousands of camera using the default usernames and passwords. This can create many privacy issues when your camera is in your home watching a young child.
The best defense against these attacks is simply, change your password to a more secure password. A more secure password does not guarantee that your surveillance system could not be hacked, however, it makes it much harder on the person doing the hacking. Virtual and physical thieves and intruders will move on if breaking into your home, computer, camera, or even phone takes too much time.
