But - a hacked camera provides quite a neat foothold into your LAN, and all the devices and data on it.I am not overly worried as its just a shot of my garage and nothing exciting happens there..
I'd be willing to bet that UPnP is enabled on the camera(s) - it used to be by default.But I am surprised anyone can connect to it as I am behind a NAT firewall have no open ports to my cameras
And that UPnP is enabled on your router.
That combination allows the camera (or other devices) to instruct the router to open ports inbound without your knowledge.
Plenty.So are there any known hacks which allow someone to hack into the DVR and change the Camera passwords?
A common one is the 'Hikvision backdoor' which exists in firmware versions 5.4.0 or earlier.
You will - you just don't know it.A bit worrying really how they can explot a hack on the cameras when I don't have "routes" (atleast not directly) to them from the Internet.
Before making changes, check with Shields Up"!
Use the 'all service ports' scan, and also check port 8000.
