Insecure Webcams ... or "The popularity of blogging useless facts"

I saw on Slashdot a tip for finding insecure webcams. It went along the lines of "do a google search for ...Frame?Mode=...".

That sounds neat! thought I. Do a quick search on google and find people picking their noses, arses, whatever.

Of course, what really happened was, I went on Google and did a search for said string. All I found was 200 blog pages that were re-reporting the same exploit cuz they also thought it was kewl!

Unfortunately a case of "the popularily of the exploit disployed the exploit".

Try it yourself here: Google Search: Insecure Webcams. No doubt the count is now increased by one ... on account of this blog posting :)
