Earlier today, I posted a link to a disturbing report about security cameras that were less than secure because of default passwords.

Here’s a story with an AU slant on the issue. Ben Westcott and Melanie Kembrey report:

On a warm summers day in the ACT a couple cheekily kiss among the shelves of a Canberra store, not knowing they’re being watched by a security camera – and the entire world.

Nearly 1000 security camera feeds from around Australia, including eight feeds and 46 cameras in the ACT region, can be watched online at the website Insecam, which features tens of thousands of cameras from around the world.

Read more on The Canberra Times. I expect we’ll see a number of articles like this one as word spreads.
