Widely used wireless IP cameras open to hijacking over the Internet, researchers say

Wireless IP cameras from Foscam and other vendors have serious security issues, researchers said at Hack in the Box

The best thing is for these cameras not to be exposed to the Internet, the researchers said. However, if this is needed, then the cameras should be deployed behind firewalls or intrusion prevention systems with strict rules.

Access to them should only be allowed from a limited number of trusted IP addresses and the maximum number of concurrent connections should be throttled, they said. Isolating the cameras from the local network is also a good idea, in order to prevent them from being abused to attack local devices.
