More IP cam insecurities

These kind of issues are why you do not expose your cams to the outside world or let them talk out to just anyone. You should always have your cams talk to a local server and make that local server be the access point for the cameras. To be really secure put devices that should not be talking to the outside world on their own network that blocks any any access to the outside world.
