"On the other hand, changing this to something as simple as `password1; and using this over and over again between multiple devices isn't much better - passwords need to be hard to guess and changed regularly to be effective," he added.
Mc Intosh went on to say that another example that shows this is that the FBI was recently able to access a notorious hacker's computer because they used their cat's name as the password.

The i Cam Source currently supports any Built-In, Fire Wire or USB webcam supported by Windows XP/Vista or OS X 10.4 (Tiger) and later.
The Auto-Zoom option causes i Cam to automatically zoom in when you are connecting to only one i Cam Source. Since your i Cam Login and Password are never sent to our server, we are unfortunately unable to recover them.
The good news is that you can simply enter a new i Cam Login and Password combination into both i Cam and the i Cam Source and you should again be able to connect.
Because of the site, the ICO has warned UK citizens of the danger of not using strong passwords - and has urged them to change their default password as soon as possible.
Chris Mc Intosh, CEO OF Via Sat UK, said that the existence of the website - and the fact people's private lives are being broadcast on the internet - demonstrates that increased connectivity means cyber security is now an all-encompassing problem and the message on the need for robust data protection is still not getting through.
Enter an i Cam Login and Password of your choosing (no need to register or create an account, but make sure they are not easily guessed) and click the Start button. Tap a video thumbnail to Zoom In, and Double-Tap (i OS) or press Back (Android) to Zoom Out. :)i Cam and i Cam Source use the same firewall- and router-piercing technologies and algorithms developed for to perform zero-config peer-to-peer connections.
Repeat Steps 2 & 3 for any additional computers and Steps 4 & 5 for any additional i OS or Android devices, being sure to use the same Login and Password for all of them. In most situations, things should "just work" unless your network is particularly complex or restricted.
In addition, your i Cam Login and Password are never sent to our servers, so your video feeds are able to be kept completely private.
The Auto-Lock Override simply prevents your device from automatically dimming its screen and going to "sleep" after a short period of inactivity whenever i Cam is running.
Internet of Things "In the future with the `Internet Of Things' connecting almost all consumer devices to the Internet, practically any one will be at risk of being hacked or accessed by third parties so a robust approach to IT security needs to be put in place now and become second nature if we are to avoid cases like the Russian site being commonplace in the future," he explained.
