Swatters are hijacking smart devices to live-stream swatting incidents

The FBI is warning homeowners about the increase of smart devices being hijacked to record or live-stream swatting incidents. Swatting is when a fake call to law enforcement is placed to report a fake crime at a person’s home. These smart devices are easily being hijacked because the owners of these devices either use default passwords that can be found online, or reuse passwords found in data breaches and leaks. It’s advised that anyone using a smart device with video and audio capabilities tighten their security by using a complex and unique password, and use 2-factor authentication wherever possible.
