An international hacker collective claims to have breached the security camera data of Tesla, Sandy Hook Elementary School and numerous other companies and institutions.
 

The collective, which calls itself "Advanced Persistent Threat 69420," said it hacked into Verkada, a security camera software start-up. The company is based in the technology region of California known as Silicon Valley.

 

Tillie Kottmann, one of the hackers who claimed credit for the breach, told Bloomberg News that they found a username and password for one of Verkada's "Super Admin" accounts online.

Kottman said the collective then gained access to live feeds of 150,000 surveillance cameras, as well as the video archives of all of Verkada's customers and Verkada's balance sheet. Most company balance sheets contain a listing of its financial assets, liabilities and equity for any owners.

"We have disabled all internal administrator accounts to prevent any unauthorized access," a Verkada spokesperson said in a statement. "Our internal security team and external security firm are investigating the scale and scope of this potential issue."
