Author: John Honovich, Published on Oct 26, 2016

'Victim' or 'accomplice'?

Dahua has issued a new press release, referring to their products as 'victims' of the massive botnet attacks hitting the Internet, emphasizing that Xiongmai devices were more heavily used and that publications have 'downgraded' their role in the attacks.

So, is Dahua a victim here?
