It's not paranoia if they really ARE watching you!

TRENDnet announced that upwards of 50,000 cameras, comprised of 26 vulnerable models have been identified which are vulnerable to the threat of being used for reverse surveillance.

An article on BBC.co.uk indicates that as 7 of the 26 vulnerable models have patches to faulty code already released and the owners would be notified of the available updates. The scary thing is, only about 5% of these cameras are registered, leaving tens of thousands of potential owners vulnerable.

If you are using one of these cameras in your home or business, it would be a smart move to search out the updated firmware immediately to insure your privacy remains intact.

Here is a list of the affected cameras and links to firmware updates where available.
