Recently, a novelty has come into fashion: smart cameras used for video surveillance. Going to the Internet, they broadcast a picture in real time to a selected mobile device anywhere in the world. These cameras are designed to provide protection. They are most often used to look after children. However, attackers can use the device against their owners as well. According to the Chinese State Surveillance Service, about thirty dollars worth special software that can be purchased in China and with its help connect to cameras of different citizens. They say that this software is able to easily access smart video cameras and other similar vulnerable devices using an internal scanner. And also Chinese hackers created groups in the largest social networks in which they publish the names of owners with passwords for their hacked devices. Every day, on a gratuitous basis, attackers give out lists of two to four hundred compromised data: along with information about access to them. This information is downloaded by hundreds of people. For free, these lists are given as a demonstration of the work of hacking software: they sell it later. As cybersecurity experts say, camera owners who do not change user names or have default passwords are at incredible risk. Professionals recommend: having bought any device connected to the network, instantly change all its settings.
