Trendnet security cam flaw exposes video feeds on net
Ok, so basically a blogger who had one of these cams noticed that the password didn't actually protect anything if you had the right url, and that it was pretty easy to find the url required to view the feed. This was on the 10th of January - trendnet said they became aware on the 12th. They tried to identify susceptible models and email customers, but apparently knew they couldn't identify everyone, and didn't mention that anywhere on their website, and instead tried to quietly fix the problem (at the time of the article's writing, they still didn't mention it).
I think this is pretty scandalous - they should have warned people that this could be a problem when they became aware, instead of sweeping it under the rug and letting a bunch of people get spied on (there were websites that let you find feeds, some of them complete with a google-maps location).
