Site exposes publically visible home security cameras by putting them on the map [#privacy]

This Interactive Map Lets You Spy on Insecure Webcam Feeds
"This new web app mashes together insecure feeds from Trendnet home security cameras with Google Maps to let you spy on people all over the world. It’s horrible, dreadful, disgusting—and utterly compelling. There is no getting around the fact that you are taking a peek into some very, very personal environments here—and if you head to the site you’ll feel euqal parts sick and fascinated. Ultimately what makes this feel so intrusive is the fact that the video feeds are tied to accurate geographic locations. But in truth the site has been established to raise awareness of an ongoing vulnerability in Trendnet home security cameras." via Gizmodo
