Security cameras are a fine value addition to the security apparatus because they offer irrefutable proof of people in the act of breaking and entering. However, the very same security cameras in the hands of criminals can be a security nightmare. In fact, security cameras are most vulnerable internet connected devices at the moment.
Last week we have had hackers use such one million vulnerable CCTV cameras to build botnet army to attack their enemies with DDoS attacks. I have reported those attacks in Brian Krebs site hit with 665 Gbps DDoS attack and IoT used for censorship and more.
The issues that security cameras can be hacked is not new, the fact that many are vulnerable has been known for years. The trends now is connecting those cameras to botnet using Linux.Mirai Trojan, a DDoS nightmare. If Cybersecurity is just too much trouble for the general public then the future could be that the future of the Internet could be that Millions of rogue fridges will render it unusable. Hopefully not.
