Outrageous Russian Website Streams Baby Monitors, Webcams, Security Cameras
A Russian-based website is streaming footage from webcams, baby monitors and home security cameras from more than 100 countries.
The live feeds from homes and businesses around the world include more than 4,000 from the U.S., 2,000 from France and 500 from the U.K.
Privacy and security expert John Sileo revealed on "Fox and Friends Weekend" this morning that the website isn't just broadcasting live feeds, it is also broadcasting the locations of those feeds.
He explained that the cameras haven't been hacked, but have been accessed by the website because they were left unsecured.
Sileo pointed out that although a group in Russia is taking credit - saying they are trying to alert the world to cybersecurity issues - there are many ways to hide behind IP addresses and firewalls, so you never know exactly where this is emanating from.
To protect yourself, Sileo recommended that you immediately change the default password on Internet connected devices, disable cameras' Internet access, put devices behind a firewall, unplug devices or cover camera lenses when not in use and be sure to lock down your wireless network.
