Citingmedia, the closed-circuit surveillance television system at a prison in the southern Thai province of Chunpong was hacked and then broadcast live on YouTube. Officials have not released details about the hacking, but local police said they only found out because they received a report from a reporter who had appeared in the live video.
According to the Associated Press, the hackers broadcast live video on YouTube under the name Big Brother’s Gaze, which lasted several hours. Multiple security surveillance cameras are shown in the live video, giving you the confidence that a hacker can access the entire surveillance system.
Thai authorities said in a subsequent statement that the camera system belonging to Lang Suan prison in the southern province of Chunpong had been compromised by an overseas hacking attack, but did not provide further information on the attack, and it was not clear who initiated the attack and how it was hacked.
Colonel Narat Savatanan, director-general of the Thai Correctional Service, said prison officials took immediate action to shut down the entire surveillance system when they became aware of the problem. Local police are currently investigating. The Associated Press said the videos were mistakenly said on the YouTube live channel to come from a Bangkok prison, but had been cleared by YouTube on Christmas Day. At the time of writing, the YouTube channel did not have any videos, most likely the account owner deleted the video.
