Hackers breach Tesla, bank and jail security by infiltrating 150,000 security cameras

    Images captured from hacked surveillance videos were posted on Twitter with the hashtag #OperationPanopticon

    A collective of American hackers has claimed to have accessed images from 150,000 security cameras in banks, jails, schools, the Tesla automaker and elsewhere in an operation to expose “the state of surveillance.”

    Images captured from hacked surveillance videos were posted on Twitter with the hashtag #OperationPanopticon.

    “What if we completely end surveillance capitalism in two days?” Asked an alleged member of a group called APT-69420 Arson Cats amid a series of tweeted images.

    “This is the tip of the tip of the tip of the iceberg,” he added. The hacking group claimed to have discovered the account credentials of a senior administrator at the Silicon Valley company Verkada, which controls an online security systems platform.

    “We have disabled all internal administrator accounts to prevent any unauthorized access,” said a Verkada spokesperson.

    “Our internal security team and the external security firm are investigating the scale and scope of this issue, and we have notified authorities,” he said. Verkada added that it has notified the companies it serves on its platform.

    Surveillance camera footage posted on Twitter shows jail cells and a man with a fake beard dancing in a bank warehouse.

    The Verkada breach shows the risk of outsourcing security surveillance and entrusting it to companies in the internet cloud, according to Rick Holland, director of information security at Digital Shadows, a risk protection company.
