According to the reports of some security experts, CCTV is currently becoming a bigger security threat, which the world should be worried about. The source claimed that the technology is now becoming more of a target for the cyber attacks performed by the intruders who are either paid by criminal gangs with the purpose of trying and erasing evidence, or for their financial and pleasurable gain.
According to CCTV.co.uk, there are about 1,850,000 million CCTV cameras all over the United Kingdom. The site said that the top 150,000 cameras are spread out between public transport and local authorities, while the rest are owned by public and private organizations.
Meanwhile, as the result of such a big amount of security cameras, the incentive to break into networks is now becoming more and more tempting. The experts called CCTV hacking “one huge, underlooked risk on the world’s doorstep”. Despite the fact that it wasn’t an entirely new risk, the observers have seen this growth over the past few years with the technology in question becoming more of a way to provide evidence and put someone away.
According to the report, there were examples where pictures captured over CCTV or IPTV could pull images of individuals in compromising positions. At the same time, everyone understands that it’s impossible to completely protect public security systems from cyber attacks. The problem is that the hackers can choose to react in the same manner they would with a wireless network – simply breaking down the encryption and breaking in.
The experts noticed that they wouldn’t be surprised in a bid to cut back on budget that a lot of local authorities have skipped the security side there, using basic encryption or layers which could easily be broken.

|Many security cctv's when they record use worm drives so how are they going to delete that?|
High end security cctv's use them due to avoid legal challenges in court in the possible altering of a recording and have an original raw recording on file.
|There is a place near Tampa in Florida called Ebor City. It wasn't safe at night with drug dealers hookers and Gangs and the like. The crime rate was horrendous. They installed CCTV with face recognition software all over the place and within a month the dealers and hookers were gone as were the gangs. Known criminals stay away from Ebor City as they know they will be picked up. and during their big Mardigras celebration, crowd violence is controlled very quickly because of the CCTV. Those people who are against CCTV are the people who have something to hide. CCTV should be everywhere but not to see in peoples homes..|

|CCTV doesn't really work, it's nothing that a hoodie and a baseball cap can't fix. Only the law abiding are visual on CCTV. Just look at the rioting in the UK. Some were caught but not many, and all were on CCTV. The dealers near my patch actually do their business at the base of the camera mast because it can't look straight down!|
