CCTV cameras at British schools hacked & their live feeds broadcasted on US website

Poor security around CCTV cameras came back to bite four schools in the UK recently after cyber criminals hacked into their CCTV systems and broadcast feeds on a US website for all to see.

Cyber criminals were also able to hack into and take control over hundreds of CCTV cameras across the UK before broadcasting live feed on the said website.

Feeds from the affected schools, which included St Mary’s Catholic Academy and Highfield Leadership Academy in Blackpool, contained live footage of playgrounds, corridors, restrooms, and other areas both inside and outside the school buildings.
