And one crib containing a blissfully snoozing toddler.” Jackson said, however, what Insecam’s designers have done “falls ever so slightly outside the realm of hacking.” “Instead, its robot is simply coming through an unlocked back door.

Default user names such as “admin” and passwords such as “12345” can easily be broken. The season ahead is, of cource, rich with traditions, not the least of which is this: In our haste to get gifts assembled and running, we – and I am speaking as a been-there-done-that dad – will skip details in the owner’s manual that seem incidental to the operation of the gizmo at hand.” But he warned that manufacturers’ default user names and passwords follow simple patterns, making the system vulnerable. And it’s not just because you don’t want Russian thugs watching your teens play video games,” he continued.

A lot of people leave it as the default and it's not too difficult to look things up, or try a number of passwords to gain access to a home network. WPA2 encryption is important, as is turning off SSID to prevent the name of your router being broadcast to anyone in range.
