There’s something clever – and sinister – going on here: Upgrade your (in)security cam firmware is a site that scrapes the web for open webcam software, plotting the results on a world map so you can dive in on hundreds of open, unsecured cameras around the globe. We’ve been poking around for a few minutes and it seems that most of the ones that work at pointed at the blinking lights of crucial electronic equipment, or doors that aren’t supposed to be opened. Highly voyeuristic, but the main frisson comes from imagining you’re being played by an elaborate viral scheme to promote some horrific film, and any minute the grey, static frame will be filled with some unspeakable beast lunging at the camera. You have been warned.
