Peeking into my private life?… Wallpad hacking video leak

There are many ‘wall pads’ installed inside apartments these days. However, as the apartment wall pad system was hacked, it was discovered that a large amount of video inside the house was leaked through the camera.

Reporter Park Jae-hyun on the sidewalk.

This is a video uploaded by a hacker on a foreign website.

There are also scenes of men tying curtains or opening and closing windows, and scenes of women carrying something inside the house at dawn.

All images are from inside the apartment.

How was it filmed?

Looking closely at the reflection in the window, the apartment wall pad catches my eye.

It is presumed that the camera on the wallpad was activated without anyone inside the house.

The hacker claimed to have several videos of the interior of a Korean apartment.

I looked at the Hong Kong website where the leak was first posted.

There are photos of the inside of the apartment, along with an article that 170,000 videos and photos of Korean apartments have been leaked. If you look closely, you can find Hangul everywhere.

The hacker also sent a list of apartments with inside footage to those who came in contact with him.

There are about 700 IP addresses written next to the apartment area and name.

After checking them one by one, they are linked to the actual apartment management site.

Residents of the apartment complained of anxiety.

[해킹 추정 아파트 주민 : (월패드에) 내부 카메라라고 해서 세대 간 화상으로 통화를 할 수가 있어요. 지금은 (카메라를) 포스트잇으로 막아놨고요. 별다른 방법은 아직 못 들었어요.]

An expert who came into contact with the hacker said, “The hacker demanded Bitcoin in exchange for providing the video.”

A reporter sent an email, but the hacker did not respond.

The Ministry of Science and ICT and the police directly visited the apartment on the list and started a joint investigation into the hacking damage to see if the video and photos were leaked.
