This camera has more security holes than you can imagine. The designer hard coded a telnet account to the camera which can be opened by Mirai botnet in just under 5 minutes. The malware then can use the camera for DDoS attacks, spamming and worse.

There is no way to fix the firmware as it seems to be in ROM rather than flash. This means problems cannot be fixed.
It is possible to use the camera behind a firewall. But the credential problem is a serious security breach.
