Hackers Breach 150,000 Verkada CCTV Cameras
Bloomberg, The Verge and other news services in the U.S. report that a group of hackers say they have breached Verkada’s CCTV data storage.
The hackers also claimed they gained access to live feeds of 150,000 surveillance cameras inside hospitals, companies, police departments, prisons and schools, as well as Verkada customers.
According to the report, Tesla and Cloudflare were on the list. Some of the cameras use facial-recognition technology to identify people captured on the footage. Verkada offers a cloud-based CCTV service deploying high resolution 4K cameras that are virtually plug and play.
