freitasm: Yes but keep other computers off until password changed.

 

 

 

You say computers, do I need to keep my phone/pad off as well? 

 

Thank you!

@zks you have a PM - it is important so read it carefully.

 

To everyone else. Once I have permission from the OP and the issue has been mitigated I'll post what has been found.

As promised - without disclosing too many details there was a infected cheap Chinese DVR with a set, default root password, and several backdoor user accounts running on the OP's network. There is malware running on it and I suspect it has been doing some nasty things. I am not 100% sure what kind of malware it was running but looks to be linked to the Mirai botnet. It is bad, without authentication I could view the cameras.

 

This is why folks you NEVER port forward to any DVR's especially those purchased off ebay / aliexpress. You're just asking for trouble if you do. More expensive, name brand DVR's have their own secure cloud solution and others should only be accessed via a VPN.

And I wonder how much Geeks on Wheels or similar services may have charged to fix it if they would have even found it.
Standard going rate would be $180-200 per hour if you're lucky to find someone good.

I am locking because this is now solved and it is not a Bigpipe problem.
