According to reports from several security researchers, both government and criminal hacking groups are still targeting Hikvision cameras with the vulnerability as of 2021. From the report: Cybersecurity firm CYFIRMA released a report this week saying that Russian cybercriminal forums are filled with hackers willing to cooperate in exploiting Hikvision cameras using the CVE-2021-36260 command injection vulnerability. “In particular, on Russian forums, we observed a leak of credentials of Hikvision cameras available for sale,” the company’s researchers said. “Hackers can use these to gain access to devices and further use attack paths to target an organization’s environment.” CYFIRMA said it found that more than 80,000 Hikvision cameras are still vulnerable to a critical command injection flaw that has a CVSS score of 9.8 out of 10. Of the more than 80,000 vulnerable cameras, more than 100 countries and 2,300 organizations are affected.
