Security and Technology Ramblings…

Chat Roulette is a new website. It allows you to randomly connect your webcam to another user’s webcam so that you can chat, talk and watch live video of each other.

Although the website does not claim to be anonymous, people using it would assume it is since there is no login and no account creation.

It is also obvious that people believe it’s anonymous given some of the lewd content being displayed on users web cams.

I hopped on the site with a packet sniffer running to see what connections are seen. Sure, enough the UDP packets originate directly from the users internet connection. See below from the results of a sample of the connection.

Good parenting would dictate you keep your kids away from this site.
