DAHUA devices displaying “HACKED [x]” as Channel Name

DAHUA Recording Devices have been Hacked globally

It seems that many recording devices manufactured by DAHUA have been accessed and reconfigured, one way or another, by automated software developed by hackers. Usually, these are devices that are directly connected to the Internet and are accessed directly, not via a VPN or, maybe, a SSH tunnel (please contact us if you want to know how to secure your devices).
Devices affected include DVRs, HCVRs, NVRs, XVRs etc.

DAHUA Timelapse Snapshots and Animated GIFS

Our brilliant Software Engineers have developed some applications that can be used to create timelapse snapshots for DAHUA devices:

  • Windows: a Windows-based application, that resides in the System Tray and captures snapshots at your defined rate
  • Linux: a Linux-server based application, without a GUI, that captures snapshots and, also, can make animated gifs (with the option to upload / synchronize them with a website); of course, if needed, we can also provide longer videos created from the snapshots
  • ARM/Embedded: an embedded device version that can be used with ARM-based embedded devices

DAHUA Devices used for DDoS attacks

DAHUA Botnet
Seems that the vulnerability we’ve been investigating and patching (at least, for our clients that love to have their networks secured) has been used to fuel up a BOTNET [roBOT+NETwork] (or maybe more) of CCTV devices. Or, at least, part of it.

There are reports incoming from:

and others too..

Although we are a 3rd party company, we are keen to provide our users with safe devices/increase the security of their existing devices. We already have developed a VPN-based / SSH-based backup-plan for those that are using these systems, so please feel free to contact us


For those that are affected (victims) of these type of attacks, we will provide, on request, a solution that we think it falls into ‘active cyber defense’ – a future way to protect online businesses and consumers. You are also encouraged to contact us for a brief discussion.


This article will be updated with news, as they are incoming..
