How far this can get? Ridiculous.

The issue was first reported by Johannes Ullrich, an instructor at the SANS Technology Institute — a computer security training organization. Last Friday, he discovered malicious software infecting the Hikvision DVRs used to record video from security cameras. The malware jumps from device to device, trying to infect any other machines it can find on the network. But it also tries to earn a little scratch for its creators by mining bitcoins, a processor-intensive activity that would probably slow down any infected DVR.

To make only $1 by mining bitcoin ? with a possible link back to you? Wow these "hackers" are dumber than expected.

Check the date.
The article doesn't sound impossible, but hackers can probably make more money from pwned devices by using them as spam distribution vehicles, and those pesky hackers are a remarkably economical bunch, even though they don't pay for the resources they use.

Perhaps they hack thousands of DVRs at a time, making thousands of $$$. Not worth the risk though.

Do you know those ARM chips are useless in bitcoin mining?

More importantly, who else is hacking into all those security cameras? CIA perhaps?

CIA definitely hacks cameras. It has been proven that the NSA has hacked in to the webcams of close to 30 million users. I wouldn't be surprised if it happened to the CC cameras as well.

No question on the CIA hacking cameras just wondering if they would bother to add a bitcoin client to the hack since it makes it easier to detect than without presuming
