web surveillance cams exposed by google

Filed under: News/Articles — Suramya @ 9:24 AM

Since google started it has given people tremendous power to search for data. This is a good thing but sometimes it returns data which the author didn’t intend to share like passwords, confedencial data etc.

A while ago I had read about people using google to search the web for scanners that were publically accessable and read the data being scanned. This is even better, you can now search on google for some specific strings and find webcams that havn’t been secured and look at its surveillance videos live. Using it I found cam’s at construction sites, computer labs, traffic lights etc. These people have no idea that their vidoes are available for free on the web.

Unless someone notifies the person running the cam its possible that he/she would never know that he/she is providing entertanment to some wierdo sitting in a dark computer room staring at people who actually have a life unlike them.

Here’s the story on

Using the searches I used I didn’t find any sites that here showing really private views like someone’s bedroom though I did see one person’s living room. So I am debating whether to post links to the google searches I used. Feel free to post your comments and let me know if I should or not. The info is already out there, should I make it easier to find or not?

Well this is all for now. More later.
