Got an IP webcam? Here are 73,000 reasons to change from the default password — Tech News and Analysis

Got an IP webcam? Here are 73,000 reasons to change from the default password — Tech News and Analysis

I have three webcams in my home that let me monitor what’s going on with our pets as well as watch for deliveries. And I’m glad that none of them use the default administrator password.

Why? Because those passwords are pretty common. If you know what they are and can scan the internet for webcams, you can actually view images from cameras that aren’t yours. That’s exactly what’s going on at Insecam.com where more than 73,000 webcams around the word are being broadcast live.

According to Neowin where I first read about this debacle , the site is allegedly trying to highlight the security hole on these devices, more than 11,000 of them being in the U.S. And it claims it will remove anyone’s webcam from the page, although the easier thing to do is simply change the admin password if you’re still using it. In fact, it’s one of the first actions I take when setting up a webcam on my own network.

Adding input devices such as webcams or microphones — the new Amazon Echo device is a superb example of this — to the home can be a super helpful thing. I’ve been able to remotely open my garage door when a delivery truck arrives, for example, because I can see that the truck is at my home. That’s far better than missing a delivery. And I’ll admit, I get a kick out of watching the Abbey Road crossing cam daily , but that’s meant for public consumption.

When setting up these types of devices in privately owned areas, you have to be smart: Make sure you and only you have control over them. Better yet, it would be nice if these device makers would programmatically force you to change the admin password upon setup. Then maybe, we wouldn’t have a glimpse into 73,000 places that we shouldn’t.

Microsoft now lets Windows Phone developers swap ad networks | VentureBeat | News Briefs | by Barry Levine

Microsoft now lets Windows Phone developers swap ad networks

Microsoft is today announcing an “ad mediation” solution to give Windows Phone developers a better chance of filling ad inventory in their apps.

By adding the code, developers can manage several in-app ad software development kits — and therefore several different ad networks. This solution calls a second or third ad network if the first designated one can’t fill the spot. In-app ads account for about a third of all revenue for app develpers.

The software giant said this solution can increase ad revenue anywhere from 15 percent to 200 percent because developers have a higher chance of filling their in-app inventory and because different ad networks can be used for different target markets.

The ad mediation can deliver a fill rate of more than 95 perecent, Microsoft said, but results will depend on the mix of networks, the markets, and how ad displays are timed.

At launch, ad partners for this ad mediation are Microsoft Advertising (of course), AdDuplex, Inneractive, and Smaato, but SDKs from other ad networks can also be used.

To help incentivize adoption by developers beyond the appeal of more cash, Microsoft is also offering points that can be redeemed for rewards through the DVLUP loyalty program , which originally had been set up by Nokia to encourage developers.

Infrastructure startups get a brand-new $40M seed fund in Amplify Partners

 

5 HOURS AGO

SUMMARY:

There’s a new infrastructure investor in town. Former Battery Ventures general partner, Sunil Dhaliwal has formed a $40 million early stage fund for startups playing in scale out infrastructure and the growth of data.

A former Battery Ventures general partner has left the venerable Boston firm to create the $40-million Amplify Partners  fund aimed at investing in seed and early stage infrastructure startups. Sunil Dhaliwal, who is the sole managing partner at Cambridge, Mass.-based Amplify, has so far raised $16 million of the fund’s goal and brought on Farah Giga over from Valhalla Partners as a principal based in San Francisco.

As for the fund, his goal is to invest between $50,000 and $1.5 million as part of a syndicate of other venture firms in seed or Series A deals. He plans to do about eight to 10 deals a year, which is a lot for such a small shop, but Dhaliwal plans to bring in a team of experts from the industry to help mentor startups. He declined to give names, but he says they are operational and architecture experts, who will take equity stakes from the firm — not from the individual company — in exchange for their help.

It’s an interesting model for the VC world, where there is an evident split between the giant, big-name funds and smaller, niche players. The NVCA recently released its fourth quarter 2012 fund-raising data that showed the top five venture capital funds accounted for 55 percent of total fundraising this quarter, noting that niche, smaller funds and giant funds made up the bulk of the new fund raises. Amplify is clearly on the niche end.

So far current Amplify Partners portfolio companies include AppNeta, Continuuity, Datadog, Fastly, Wibidata, as well as multiple companies still in stealth mode.

So what else is Dhaliwal planning to invest in? The big picture is in companies that are part of the upcoming shift in computing, networking and storage infrastructure thanks to scaled out architectures, the growth of data, and real-time infrastructure. Most of our readers are well aware of the massive shift occurring today in technology infrastructure. Between scale out computing (hello,Facebook and the Open Compute Project), disruptions in networking (shout out to Nicira!) and changes in how startups and enterprises source their computing (what’s up AWS and devops!), we’re seeing the kind of shift that hits computing once a generation.

Dhaliwal calls it Infrastructure 2.0 and he says that the trillion-dollar IT industry is under siege, which means the giants are spending big on what I think of as “save-me deals,” such as Cisco spending $1.2 billion for Meraki, or VMwareshelling out $1.26 billion for Nicira.

If you care only about the cutting edge of machine learning and how to manage petabytes of big data, you might want to quit reading now and just come to our Structure:Data conference in March. But if you’re a normal person dealing with mere normal data, you’ll probably want to stick around. Although your data might not be that big or complex, that doesn’t mean it isn’t worth looking at in a new light.

With that in mind, here are six of the best free tools I’ve come across for helping we mere mortals analyze our data without having to know too much about, well, anything (I’d keep an eye on the still-under-wraps Datahero, too). I’ve gathered some personal data and tracked down some interesting public data sets to help demonstrate what a novice can do with them. Someone with more skills can certainly do a lot more, and…
