Persirai malware in action: IP cameras all across the world compromised

Problems are growing so fast with IP wireless cameras, it is hard to keep up with the reported let alone patches and fixes for the problems. I keep telling people it is not the camera's view the hackers care about. It is the access to the router and switches so that the can compromise the entire system. Once they get into any of the Internet of Things devices like cctv cameras, they basically use it as a back door into your system. If you CCTV cameras are on your main network for the office or if at home for the families computers, they use this as a way to get deep into your systems. Try putting these devices onto a separate router, one that is not accessing the internet if possible.
