Hackers Watch Child over Camera Monitor


Bryan Lillie, Chief Technical Officer, Cyber Security, QinetiQ commented on the Baby monitor hack.

Bryan Lillie, Chief Technical Officer, Cyber Security, QinetiQ :

“We are still a long way from makers of connected devices appreciating the security risks, let alone users appreciating them. Expect to see a lot more of these flaws exposed over the next couple years – hopefully by researchers rather than hackers.”

Hijacking baby monitors is a particularly chilling invasion of our privacy, but cameras and microphones are everywhere and the implications are huge, from secretly recording private business video-conferences to controlling CCTV cameras in secure environments.”
