Looking for camera traffic

Metadata is totally a thing. Also, don't point your cameras anywhere you don't want entirely public, because even if nefarious entities can't tap the images themselves, metatdata is totally a thing.

Your Security Cameras Could Be Snitching On You

Security researchers from Queen Mary University of London and the Chinese Academy of Sciences in Beijing detailed their findings in a new paper, "Your Privilege Gives Your Privacy Away: An Analysis of a Home Security Camera Service." They published it Monday at the IEEE International Conference on Computer Communications, taking place from July 6 to 9.

"Once considered a luxury item, these cameras are now commonplace in homes worldwide," Gareth Tyson, a senior lecturer at Queen Mary University of London, and one of the study authors, said in a prepared statement. "As they become more ubiquitous, it is important to continue to study their activities and potential privacy risks."

We will not edit your comments. However, we may delete your comments, or cause them to be hidden behind another link, if we feel they detract from the conversation. Commercial plugs are fine, if they are relevant to the conversation, and if you don't try to pretend to be a consumer. Annoying endorsements will be deleted if you're lucky, if you're not a whole bunch of people smarter and more articulate than you will ridicule you, and we will leave such ridicule in place.
