    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 "from" 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

    I'm not sure which upsets me more: that people are so unwilling to accept
    responsibility for their own actions, or that they are so eager to regulate
    everyone else's.
