Now There Is CCTV Hacking Too

In the UK, to say that CCTV (Closed Circuit TV) cameras are commonplace would be an understatement; it has become, for good or ill, one of the most "watched" countries in the world. So it's perhaps not surprising that hackers there have discovered ways to access the DVR units associated with the cameras. This opens up the possibility of not only deleting video data and so on, but also to use the DVR access as a jumping off point to access the rest of the network - as DVRs are often networked devices these days, and they are often UPnP capable - which may open them up to another recently discovered vulnerability.
