Wanna Cry Ransomware Impact On Video Surveillance / Physical Security?

The major recent cyber security stories within video surveillance are Dahua's backdoor and Hikvision's backdoor.

However, overall, the biggest recent cyber security story is the 'Wanna Cry' Ransomware attack. Currently, we have not heard any reports of this impacting video surveillance systems, though given how widespread the attacks are, this could be happening.

This has started to be debated in other IPVM articles.

For example, one member said:

And you are all worried about Hikvision. Maybe it would be better looking in your own back yard first.

Another member counter:

These recent events justifies the calling out of Hik' s issues even more. Cyber-attacks will be our enemy of the future in many different ways.

What do you think? Will the Wanna Cry Ransomware have an impact on video surveillance? Does it impact your attitude to cyber security?
