CCTV Hacked Private Videos of 21 Year Old Mumbai YouTuber Family Leaked All Details
The CCTV of a Mumbai-based YouTuber’s house was hacked and objectionable videos of him and his family members were leaked on the internet. The young man came to know about this when he himself saw these videos on the internet. The youth has lodged a police report on the matter and according to media reports, action has been initiated in the matter. Nowadays, it has become very important to have security cameras in the house to stay safe from thieves, but these cameras have become a new weapon for cyber criminals to peek into someone’s personal life.
According to TOI, the CCTV installed inside the house of a Mumbai-based YouTuber was hacked and after that the hackers shared objectionable videos of the YouTuber and other family members inside the house on the internet. When the YouTuber saw the explicit footage of himself on the internet, he lodged a complaint with the Bandra Police. The incident came to light when an unidentified person hacked the closed-circuit television (CCTV) system installed at the YouTuber’s Bandra (West) residence.
In the video, the YouTuber was seen coming out of the toilet without any clothes, while his mother and sister were also seen in the background. The incident occurred on November 17, following which Bandra Police had to collaborate with its cyber team to trace the Internet Protocol (IP) address and identify the person responsible for the illegal intrusion. Furthermore, there have also been requests to remove these video footages spread across various social media networks.
According to the report, YouTuber is also active in eSports. He came to know about the video being leaked when a friend told him about it on Saturday. In her formal complaint she said, “An unknown person has illegally accessed the CCTV camera installed in my bedroom. The video has been widely shared on Instagram, Telegram and other social media platforms.”
Authorities are looking into the possibility of whether someone known to the YouTuber may have gained unauthorized access to the CCTV system. The complainant took action when two friends recognized his mother and sister in the footage.
The incident has resulted in a case being registered under various sections of the Indian Penal Code, including defamation and the Information Technology Act. Charges include identity theft, theft violations and dissemination of sexually explicit content. At present, the identity of the accused person remains unknown.
If you have a CCTV camera installed in your house, then you should keep these things in mind:-
- Use a strong password made up of letters, numbers and special characters for your CCTV camera system.
- Give access to cameras only to selected people in the house.
- If the video is being saved in the cloud, keep the credentials used to log in to the cloud strong and enable two-factor authentication there.
- On your smartphone which has CCTV’s app installed, avoid downloading any unauthorized files from the internet, which may introduce malware on the smartphone and give hackers access to your phone or app.
