Hacked chat webcam

The public is being warned about a Russian-based website which has been found to be broadcasting thousands of feeds of live video footage from inside homes and businesses around the world, including over 4,000 in the U. The footage has been accessed by hacking into personal webcams, CCTV cameras and even baby monitors using weak or default passwords.

A Linksys spokesperson told the BBC: “We are still trying to determine which Linksys IP cameras are referenced on the site.

We believe they are older Linksys IP cameras which are no longer being manufactured.“For these cameras we do not have a way to force customers to change their default passwords.

Britain's Information Commissioner's Office has warned of the breach and posted guidelines on its site.

It recommends changing the default password for any new device - which is the login the Russian hackers have exploited - and checking available security settings.

The Russian website claims what they're doing is entirely legal because they've hack into cameras where the owners didn't change the default password.

They go so far as to claim their intent is to highlight poor user security. There are more than 4,000 cameras listed in the United States, and 152 countries to choose from worldwide.

The purpose of the website is to highlight poor cyber security, a person claiming to be the administrator told Sky News.

They wrote that broadcasting the footage was the only way to "contact a million" users.

One stream shows a baby in Virgina, another fast asleep in Utah, and a third in her crib in Florida.

Not only does the website show these unfiltered images, they also provide the exact coordinates of the location, complete with links to a map.
