I Feel Like We Should Be Talking a Bit More About This “Romanian hackers took over two-thirds of the District’s outdoor surveillance cameras”

Right?!?!?! What in holy hell… The Washington Post reported over the holidays:

“Romanian hackers took over two-thirds of the District’s outdoor surveillance cameras just before President Trump’s inauguration, according to a federal criminal complaint unsealed Thursday.

The January attack affected 123 of the D.C. police department’s 187 outdoor surveillance cameras, leaving them unable to record for several days. Two Romanians, whom law enforcement officials describe as part of a bigger extortionist hacking group, are being charged in D.C. federal court with fraud and ­computer crimes.”
