Capturing Wireless Camera Signals?


Recommended Posts

Hello has anyone tried to capture the signal of a wireless camera using Jasager on the Fon. Im unfimiliar with the signals a wireless camera uses. Does it not broadcast the SSID and can it be de-authenticated from its base station? Thx for any info or links.

yes and no. You can interrupt it by having the camera move from its AP to your fake one but by doing that you take down the feed and the person/system monitoring it would notice as they would no longer get any traffic from the camera.

If all you want to do is a DOS against it there are a lot easier ways.

I have a friend who specialises in camera security and after what he told me I'd never trust wifi cameras. After what I've seen on the net I wouldn't trust wired if they are not air gapped from the normal network either.

If wifi camera is 802.11x kind of camera it is really easy to get those jammed with wifi jammer and if it's 2,4 GHz and not 802.11x kind of camera then it's easy to watch video from those cameras example with Wireless Camera Hunter:

Some of those cameras use same frequency as baby monitors so it might be possible to send your own video with baby monitor camera to those receivers... (Sorry my bad english... I haven't got enought coffee).

yes I prefer wired but even wired can be picked up by devices that work like the camera hunter however they are quit spendy. I believe it uses a form of van Eck phreaking that allows such a thing nonetheless the technology is out there to those whom have the correct resources and information.

Thank you Whig for your information and sont drink all the coffee I need some too :-)

Any security camera connected to a computer network is never secured, no matter if it is connected via WIFI or Wired connection. If someone can manage to break into your system then they will be compromised.

There are certainly ways to improve its security, hiring a profession and let him do the dirty work for you. Or ensure the cameras have its own independent network system and no connectivity from the outside.

But you are right, they can never be secured enough from preying eyes.
