Website links to thousands of insecure webcams worldwide

PHOENIX (CBS5) -- The operator of Internet site insecam.cc is publishing thousands of webcams online that are purportedly unsecured due to the factory password on the camera not being changed.

The susceptible devices include AvTech and Hikvision DVRs as well as Foscam, Panasonic, Linksys and IPCamera cameras.

Cameras worldwide are broadcast on the site including nearly 1,000 from the United States. Users can search by city as well.

The city of Phoenix was represented by over 100 cameras on the site which include images of babies sleeping in cribs, live images of people's kitchens and backyards.

Even more ominous is the fact that on the same page where the site displays the live camera image, a Google map is also displayed showing the exact GPS coordinates of the camera.
