I take my privacy very seriously - not that I have anything to hide! But I'm shocked by this latest hack. A Russian website is leaking hundreds of live feeds from UK-based webcams, CCTV cameras and even baby monitors.

The problem is mainly down to people not changing their passwords from the default one that devices come with. What worries me though is how hackers found these feeds in the first place.

As more 'smart' devices join the 'internet of things' stories like this seem to be on the increase.
