In an extraordinarily creepy way of marketing their services, online security company Uppersafe showed just how vulnerable your devices are to hackers by hacking into the webcams of some unsuspecting members of the public. Just by using some free online directories of webcams, they were able to monitor the lives of 20 people, spotting things such as a woman’s dog playing with a punctured ball, a clumsy waiter smashing a glass and a woman whose phone charger is a bit too short. To move things up a notch and properly freak these people out, they then sent them each a present to aid their lives – a new ball and wine glass for the dog/waiter, and a charger with a longer cable for the woman – their responses were suitably alarmed, and highlighted just how little we prioritise security when it comes to our smart devices.
