Downloading the content of your GoPro from its WiFi

During my last vacation I had some troubles making my GoPro visible to Ubuntu through the USB charger so I decided to go for a different approach.

Turns out that the camera itself exposes an HTTP server, which lists the contents of the camera, at 10.5.5.9:8080, so after turning on the WiFi hotspot on the camera and connecting my laptop to it I just needed to:

1
wget -r http://10.5.5.9:8080/

Thanks to Lucio for suggesting the -r!


Hi there! I recently wrote an ebook on web application security, currently sold on leanpub, the Amazon Kindle store and gumroad.

It contains 160+ pages of content dedicated to securing web applications and improving your security awareness when building web apps, with chapters ranging from explaining how to secure HTTP cookies with the right flags to understanding why it is important to consider joining a bug bounty program.

Feel free to skim through some of the free chapters published on this blog and, if the content seems interesting enough to you, grab a copy on leanpub, the Amazon Kindle store, gumroad or simply checkout right down below!
