I would mod parent up if I could.
We made a big mistake when we made cracking into things illegal. We should have made cracking into things legal and made people put up impenetrable walls. This is computers and data. There are walls that anyone can put up that can keep out governments. This would have created demand for real security and by now we'd have it ubiquitously without trying.
I hope this guy doesn't get caught, and I appreciate and do not encourage his actions.
So you have people with no technical skill in coding, or getting into their hardware buying a device, just say baby monitor and it is alright for a person to hack into it because these people do not have the technical knowledge to secure it better? This is asinine. It is like saying "It is fine to steal a persons car if you can because the person should have secured it better". Doesn't matter if it had an alarm and an immobilizer, was locked in a secure garage that was alarmed. If I can steal it it si the owner's fault for not taking better safety precautions.
