Proof of concept from White Hats

Interesting article about “Good Guy Hackers” = White Hats taking over Canon DSLR’s over WiFi.


Proof of concept means just that, it could happen, and if it did you could lose access to your files, photos, etc.


Really a lot to be said for nice tough 30 character gobbledegook network passwords vs generic let my router Assign a generic password (that can be found on internet).


Article also offers useful hints like updating firmware if real attack were to happen.



And yes, after long days/nights, I'd still like to swing these hunks of glass , plastic and silicon against the nearest wall Come on retirement!
