While you are fixing the vulnerability in your Axis video camera.
Please also stop to check and make sure that you have turned off (or
properly configured) it's ability to send snapshots via email. If
you turn on the function without configuring the addresses, older
cameras will default to sending email to email@example.com "from"
firstname.lastname@example.org. We get on the order of ten to fifteen thousand
of these every day. On occasions when we've bothered to look, we've
seen things ranging from computer rooms to jewelry store security
cameras. Probably not the kind of thing you'd want to be sending to
