Smart camera devices open to hackers after network vulnerabilities have been discovered.
Kaspersky Lab security researchers have admitted to finding multiple security vulnerabilities across popular smart devices.
According to research from the company the uncovered flaws could allow attackers to obtain remote access to video and audio feeds from the smart cameras, which are used frequently for baby monitors or internal home and office security surveillance.
The vulnerabilities enabled the devices to be remotely disabled and execute malicious code on devices.
The security researchers found that the devices had been vulnerable to the malware due to an insecurely designed cloud system, which was open to easy interference.
Those devices that were affected by the vulnerabilities could cause chaos for users, allowing malicious users to carry out various types of attacks.
