Hikvision Cameras Defaulting? [Older Firmware Cameras Being Hacked]

Hi, We seem to have certain sites of ours with Hikvision cameras just resetting to factory defaults? Has anyone seen this themselves?

So far three sites this week? It’s only just started to happen. We upgraded the f/w and reset the admin password,reset the IP to what is required, but they drift back to factory default? VMS is Milestone

[IPVM Note: After this discussion and suggestions provided, integrator followed up:

Hi, Issue found - firmware level is lower than required to prevent these hacks as suggested. Also uPNP was on so they were in effect available on the internet.. We tested and proved remote access to the camera with no human entered port forwards

All locked down now.
