Passwords On Cameras

See this. http://splashdata.com/press/worstpasswords2013.htm

Are you using any of these? (Dont' post your answer!)

Are your cameras capable of using passwords this long? I've seen cameras that could not handle 123456789 as a password because that's longer than 7 characters.

Does your VMS insist you use (strange/weak/default/short/cleartext) passwords for the cameras it connects to?

I do hacker lectures for ASIS and related audiences and too too many of these people find it disturbing that I suggest four character numeric passwords are perhaps too weak.


Well, probably more than half the industry uses #12 as a default, so I guess we're screwed.

According to a previous poll, more than half of our members say they never use default passwords, so that's some reassurance I guess?
