Shodan Stories Day 68: A Construction Site in Northern Illinois
AXIS Q6128-E Network Camera on 22.214.171.124
Shodan couldn’t identify where it was beyond “United States”, and I found that was likely because it was connected to the network via a mobile Sierra AirLink router, the kind we’ve seen several times now. So my main goal was just to find out where this camera is. Good start, it’s in a construction site and I have pan/tilt/zoom control to look around with. Because it’s 4K I can get extremely zoomed in with very high resolution. This thermostat is on the third-farthest central beam. I can almost make out the temperature, but not quite. But look at that dirt! I found this thing that looks like a face with teeth on the far wall. Well it kind of looks like a face. After looking around for awhile, finally I found a tag on one of the pieces of equipment, which read
Aha! Rockford, Illinois, or at least somewhere close by.
I think we can call this one case closed. See you tomorrow.
