I found this posting on my cousins weblog. Apparently, if you type in a certain search string into the almighty Google, you can find access to a ton of unsecure webcams located throughout the world. Here is an excerpt from his post:
“So, someone discovered that if you ran a particular search string through Google (inurl:”ViewerFrame?Mode=”), you could pull up all sorts of unsecured Web/Security cameras in locations all over the world.
You can zoom, pan & scan, and change the resolution, dependant on the camera’s capabilities.
You can find things like a laundromat, a glass factory somewhere in the Western US, and someplace where people go to play dominos or something.”
