If you haven’t heard by now, there has been an enormous TRENDnet security hole floating around the internet for about a year, allowing anyone from anywhere to view insecure TRENDnet IP cameras with ease — no password required. While the exploit was widely publicized last January, hundreds of cameras remain accessible, primarily due to older camera models that haven’t had their firmware updated. If the IP camera isn’t registered, TRENDnet has no way of notifying camera owners that anyone with an internet connection could be looking into their homes, businesses, or bedrooms.
