A Terrifying Website Is Live Streaming Melbourne Homes

A creepy website is live streaming unwitting Melburnians in their homes. 

The website, which we won't name, hacks into unsecured surveillance cameras and even baby monitors and live streams the footage for anyone who visits. 

It's the biggest directory of online surveillance cameras in the world, with over 16,800 live feeds. 

Crime experts warn it allows people to see into some properties as well as when people leave and enter.

There are currently 14 in Melbourne, with The Leader finding that it shows "the insides of homes and businesses, people’s backyards, driveways, inside bars and what appears to be an RSL club lounge."

The suburbs with live cams currently are: Pakenham, Cremorne, Mornington, Yarraville, Clayton, Mt Eliza, Morwell, Hawthorn, Port Melbourne, Elsternwick and Brunswick.

Cyber-security experts warn that not only is it an invasion of privacy they can be used as vital tools for criminals as well.
