Default passwords on fish cams

Postby BraenDead on Thu Nov 20, 2014 10:09 am

There's a new site that is aggregating web cams that use the default passwords on the devices, mentioned on CNN today: http://money.cnn.com/2014/11/20/technol ... ?hpt=hp_t2. I was looking at the Madison cameras to see if there is anything I recognize, and saw someone has a fish room camera. If anyone knows who this is, please urge them to change the password on the camera: http://www.insecam.cc/cam/bycity/Madison/

This is also a good reminder for anyone else out there, please don't keep the default passwords set on network equipment, especially if you have a port forward to access the device externally (Apex, web cams, ReefKeeper, your router, etc). If anyone needs help securing their equipment, I'm happy to offer assistance.
