(KPLR) – It's the latest threat to our security.  

I once read a statistic that indicated the average person is on a surveillance camera about 7 times a day.

That never worried me.  In fact, I felt a little safer knowing that.

That is until now.

New research shows that many surveillance cameras are subject to hackers.

That means, prisons, military, industrial plants and banks could all be the target of anyone wanting to cause mischief.

So the next time anyone relies on a surveillance camera for safety they better make sure it can't be used for anything else.

I'm JB and that's “The Way It Oughta Be”.
