Through this could you possibly figure out somebody's ip address?

This one worked for me. I used it a long time ago though. I don't know if it's still functional:

no respects real hackers anymore....... :(
There is a fine line between hacking and cheating during a game. Hacking is if u are smart and u do it by urself. Cheating is if u download a program. Hacking means ure smart :D

well it gets my voyer stamp of approval, but I would like to actually hack one that were not allowed to see.
you can. you can potentially do this to any webcam/security camera connected to the internet(even if not in use)
My Webcam is connected to the Internet, and I guarantee you won't find it this way (nor will you be able to view it if you discover a way to identify it). You're actually better off googling for "view webcam" - and you won't get in any trouble with the camera owner that way, since if it's linked in this way, the owner wants you to take a look. You're on your own if you are doing this at school or work, though.

its not a web cam its a web based cctv camera theres a diferance and you can get arrested for doing it in the uk for breaching of human rights

If it's on the web, not encrypted, or password protected then it is defacto public domain. No privacy laws violated.
Hycro Estwald5 years ago
That is true, but wouldn't it be possible for such a camera accidentally being not encrypted or password protected?
Estwald Hycro5 years ago
No. Just as ignorance of the law is no defense failure to read the documentation for setting up one of these cameras is no basis for claims of breach of privacy. Most of these type of cameras the choice to password protect or not is an active decision made during setup. I don't know of any of them that come with encryption,.so encryption not being mentioned at all in the documentation should be a tip off that you need a different solution if you desire to encrypt the feed.

inurl:/view/index.shtml actually only gives you AXIS brand Network cameras, also known as IP Cameras. The " /view/index.shml " is their default for their server in their camera software. For more info on these cameras check out their web site.
