All CCTV cameras vulnerable to infrared attacks – study

All security cameras are vulnerable to attack by infrared light, a transmission invisible to the human eye, which could infiltrate sensitive data like PIN codes and passwords, a new study has shown.

The study, by researchers at Ben-Gurion University of the Negev (BGU), found that because security cameras are equipped with infrared (IR) LEDs for night vision, hackers can establish a bidirectional covert connection with the internal network of the security system
