Webcam snooper now looking for a job
The developer of a widely vilified website that aggregated feeds from unsecured webcams is apparently looking for work as a remote programmer.
Insecam, which was criticized last week by the U.K.’s data protection regulator, no longer features webcam feeds but has the message: “Programmer is looking for a good remote job. Skills: Linux, FreeBSD, C/C++, Python, MySQL.”
The attention drawn to Insecam is likely still driving traffic to the website, but probably not from employers eager to hire its creator. Insecam contended that it did not hack the webcams but that the devices had default credentials.
In some countries, using default credentials to access a device would still be considered illegal.
