The hacker has several tricks, which he uses to entertain viewers during the stream.The 2ch case is quite different from other incidents listed above: this time the hacker received almost full control over victims devices, not only their webcams. His favorite trick is to open a homosexual porn page when the unsuspecting user is near the computer, or show the victim’s page to the trolls.
Yesterday one of 2ch’s users attracted the attention of Russian media.
The public is being warned about a Russian-based website which has been found to be broadcasting thousands of feeds of live video footage from inside homes and businesses around the world, including over 4,000 in the U. The footage has been accessed by hacking into personal webcams, CCTV cameras and even baby monitors using weak or default passwords.
The site includes footage of a child’s bedroom in Birmingham in the UK obtained from a baby monitor, as well as footage from inside a UK office, a gym and a shop interior, obtained from CCTV networks supposedly used to keep the companies and businesses secure.
Readers studied the hacking 101 guide and went online looking for cameras with poor passwords, installed in WCs, flats and back-street brothels. So, massive webcam breaches happened from time to time.
But in the most recent incident the scenario was completely different.
