Analog surveillance systems were difficult to hack into by people who lacked the adequate knowledge, but IP cameras — having their own IPs — can be quite easily physically located and their stream watched in real-time by anyone who has a modicum of computer knowledge and knows what to search for on Google."

    Here's the deal though: if it's been six years and nobody's bothered to close these security holes --- and the searches still work, I just tried --- then *THAT* is news.

    Finding a security exploit is not big news. Leaving a security hole unfixed for six years *is* big news, especially if it's done by companies for whom "security" is literally their middle name.
