Google hacks according to Google are compilation of carefully crafted Google searches that expose novel functionality from Google's search and map services. There are many uses of Google hacks and there are several Google Hacks available. Today we will go through on how you can use Google Hacks to look at and control some of the cameras accessible through the internet. Often you can find good quality feeds from cameras that are left open purposely for viewers on the internet and sometimes you will stumble upon a few that are not meant for "public viewing". Administrators can learn a lot from using Google hacks and making their feeds secure.
