Title: Hacking Internet Cameras
Post by: Samker on 30. December 2007., 22:11:56
Do you have an internet camera? Do you broadcast it to be publicly access by the world?, How do you know it is publicly access by others or not?. I do have a webcam. After watching the movie clips by FOX News.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FONb6SfJpSI

I started to grab my webcam manual and see whether there is any function to allow it to be access through a web browser. Ha, lucky it was a cheap one, that’s why, is not rich in function. Sometimes is good to have cheap thing.

After watching the clips, my hands feel a bit itching to test it out how to hack internet camera. Seem like the fox news clip is showing us how to hack instead of stopping such behavior.

After pausing and replay the video a few times. I spotted some technique use in the clips. It’s using a Google advanced search operator “inurl”.

I spotted “inurl:/view/index.shtml” and “inurl:/DCS900/Aview.html”. So, I just make a quick search through Google and as a conclusion, most sites are password locked or those if you can view which is eventually ready to be publicly view and Google just can’t find “inurl:/DCS900/Aview.html”. Ermm…maybe Google has taken out the search for “inurl:/DCS900/Aview.html”. Guess I miss the fun. For your information DCS 900 is a DLink network camera, most people just bought it and broadcast it without changing the administrator default password, therefore it can be easily access and being index by Google.

I guess that just for DLINK DCS900, how about other brand? I didn't really check it up, however if you think you are at risk. Just do some Google search operator using inurl.

Here's 2 to try... You'll be busy for hours on end....

Google Search Example 1: http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&q=inurl%3A%2Fview%2Findex.shtml&btnG=Search

Google Search Example 2: http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&q=inurl:viewerframe%3Fmode%3D&revid=1091147995&sa=X&oi=revisions_inline&resnum=0&ct=broad-revision&cd=1

good to know. Guess people are just lazy by not changing the passwords! Yet they take the time to set up everything else. Lesson learned.

People think they are a clever hacker by watching those web cams. Until you do a bit of googling and you realize those are all public cams linked on a web site some places spexially for the purpose of people clicking and watching it, just like a blogs. You're not spying anything, the cam was put there for public viewing.

@ qwertysan

I don't think your notebook camera will be a problem because like most people said already, most of those were public cameras set for viewing. In order for people to access your camera, you probably would have to set it up for remote access. So you should be fine. Nice article but sad to see that it's just a twisting of some facts...

My friend have an internet camera. But she did not even broadcast it to be publicly access by the world. Because she knows that it can be access buy other people. That is why she bought a CCTV camera for her computer. seo services (http://www.computerseo.com)

Weird, I was only searching yesterday for some remotely controlled cameras on Google. There's other ways to search for them but like people have said the majority are there on purpose for tourism... they are very rarely security cameras. It's fun though and makes me want to buy one of those Axis systems just as a gadget.
