First off: Grammar.
Second: Im going to guess that English isn't your primary language.
Third: Yeah, it's not hard to connect to a cam like that. If someone DID connect, they were probably just some neckbeard messing around on his computer. He probably didn't "hack" anything. Better be safe and change your password, though.

I heard something about this on the news today. I'll see if I can find the video.

Here is an article from 2012.

Ha, it took me to read the posts to realise what a 'onetryand' was...thanks!


Apart from that, it is quite scary if someone tried to take over your cctv. Why?

disable plug and play support on your moden,
and go to the support page of your camera manufacturer and download the security fix,
last year it was shown that "most" cameras can be accessed from the web,
giving access through the firewall of some modems.

this is supposed to be easy to exploit,
so it could be that they used your cameras IP to access the rest of your network

better to be safe

so is there a search thing where people can just put in a ip address then see the cameras or do they have to download things to get them ?

There are many ipscanners out there so i wouldnt doubt there is one just for cctv's. At one time we used to just use google to find IP cams on the net. Cant remember just how we did it though, that was a long time ago now

**YouTube. The semicolon would have been fine if the statements were not separated by a line.

Yes IP camera's can be wide open on the internet if not setup correctly. The software that comes with the camera includes a web portal for viewing, but the big question does it have cryptography to protect the stream and user log-ins? So there you have the dilemma. The best way to handle something like this is to instead of opening the portal to the outside world through the router/firewall, have a SSH or VPN server setup at the home.
