Australian Information Security Incident Reported: October 22 2016

A series of beach mounted webcams, designed to check waves and crowd size have been hacked to focus on sunbathing women.

A spokesman for SURFit said he was shocked that the cameras had been interfered with but assured that he had already taken steps to prevent a repeat of it happening.

He admitted the cameras had been hijacked, and that it had been done one other time. The camera was replaced and upgraded with a security patch.
