Telephone Conversations (2012)- Hello... How are you? I am watching you!
Early 2012 the company TRENDnet recognized a fail in some of their
SecurView Cameras. Because of this vulnerability any internet user
could have had acces to those cameras in real time. The company
apologised for the mistake and included a software update on their
website, with the aim of fixing the fault. Many users who installed
these systems still have not updated their software, therefore access
to images from their webcam still remains possible over the internet.
Telephone convesations is a action where we will screen what the
TRENDnet vulnerable cameras are showing in real time. Beside the
screening, spectarors will find the telephone number associated to the
cameras IP address.
