Backdooring DVR/NVR devices

Embedded devices, IoT, connected devices are growing very fast as their demand increases and innovation taking place in the industry. Due to huge demand in market, they lack in security prospect. There are many ways to attack such devices especially in DVR/NVR devices. 5 to 6 years back NSA ANT catalog leaked, they used to backdoor devices and they use to intercept/get data from the system. Due to ANT catalog leakage, Hardware implant attack were introduced in public. Although it’s an old technique to perform attack on embedded devices but its easy and proven attack and because of this some well-known researcher came with an idea called NSA playset which introduces the different kind of tools which researchers, security fellows can take advantage off and leverage their research/study/attack. In this talk, we are taking the reference of these ideas and implement a hardware backdoor by taking advantage of hardware hacking skills. Through this hardware backdoor, we can track devices, access root shell from anywhere and can stream fake videos/images on console like Hollywood style.
