The world’s most dangerous search engine. These include routers, switches, webcams, traffic lights, SCADA systems, and even home security systems.
Here, we will look to find webcams that are either unprotected or will allow us to log in with the default credentials.
STEP 1 : Log In To Shodan
First you need to login at https://www.shodan.io/ Although you can use Shodan without logging in, Shodan restricts some of its capabilities to only logged-in users.
STEP 2 : Search for Webcams
There are many ways to find web cams on Shodan. Usually, using the name of the manufacturer of the webcam is a good start. Remember, Shodan indexes the information in the banner, not the content. This means that if the manufacturer puts their name in the banner, we can search by it. ex webcamxp
