Has Any American Ever Been The Victim Of a Hik Camera Being Hacked?

I don't consider access via default password a hack, as we would have to include pretty much every manufacturer at one time or another.

No, what I'm talking about cyber exploits against Hik cameras, leading to actual damages preferably.

I said American only so the cases can be easier to research, but failing that, anything that's documented.
