Security cameras = insecure
How unfortunate. Cameras are among the most frequently compromised IoT devices -- and they long have been. It doesn't take a lot of time to find those exposures, either, if you know what you're doing.

Moreover, for botnet purposes, the users are left unaware. The camera still functions perfectly as a camera. Sensational headlines are generally only made if online do-badders are using those vulnerabilities to spy on people (and, even then, naturally, only when they get found out!).

Re: Security cameras = insecure
Let them spy on me.  My camera at work doesn't work, and the one at home on my laptop is always off since I only get on it once a week.  The only other camera I have is a wifi to spy on the horses, but it's a piece of junk that loses power all the time.  Guess best option is not to have a camera.  But what about the cell?  Guess someone would look in my dark pocket a lot!
