all cctv cameras vulnerable to infrared attacks – study  -  home security systems
The study, conducted by Ben's researchers
University of Negev Gurion (BGU)
Found that because the security camera is equipped with infrared (IR)
For night vision led, hackers can establish a two-way concealed connection with the internal network of the security system.

Data leakage outside the network)
And penetration (
Send data to network).
In a filtering scenario, an attacker accesses the surveillance camera via a local network with the help of malware and uses the camera's infrared signal to transmit sensitive data, such as a pin code or password.
In the penetration scenario, the attacker uses an infrared LEDs to transmit the signal (to the naked eye) to the camera at a distance of up to tens of meters.
Encode binary data such as command and control messages on IR signals.
