Surveillance Cameras Can Be Hacked

High-tech surveillance cameras introduced by government organisations are liable to being hacked by cyber criminals unless top security precautions are made, internet experts have warned.

Sensitive images recorded from motorways or financial institutions could be altered or removed if individuals succeed in hacking into the internet-based networks on which the cameras operate.

Government bodies across the UAE have previously used analogy CCTV cameras but according to suppliers, the trend is shifting toward internet-based cameras.

If security officials and police have the right password details, they are able to access these cameras remotely from their own laptops.
