Australian Sites Caught Up In Verkada Cameras Hack
Australian childcare centres, schools and aged care residential facilities have been caught up in the hack of a US security camera company that has thousands of global users.
Hackers have infiltrated security cameras supplied by start-up Verkada. The company said that it had disabled all accounts to prevent further unauthorized access and advised authorities of the breach.
Verkada has more than 5200 customers worldwide – including in cities, colleges, hotels and large businesses including Tesla.
The international collective of hackers say they broke into the company’s system to draw attention to the widespread use of surveillance cameras.
