Security camera flaw exposes video feeds on the Net

http://j.mp/wwLgKV  (BBC)

   "Feeds from thousands of Trendnet home security cameras have been
    breached, allowing any web user to access live footage without needing
    a password ... However, a spokesman told the BBC that "roughly 5%" of
    purchasers had registered their cameras and it had not yet issued a
    formal media release despite being aware of the problem for more than
    three weeks.  "We first became aware of this on 12 January," said Zak
    Wood, Trendnet's director of global marketing."
