Dahua Technology is also partially state-owned by Central Huijin Asset Management and China Securities Finance Co., Ltd. at 1.05% and 1.32 respectively.[6] Central Huijin Investment is a state-owned enterprise and wholly owned subsidiary of China Investment Corporation,[7] a sovereign wealth fund that reports to the State Council of the People's Republic of China.[8][9]

Controversies

In September 2016, the largest DDoS attack to date, on KrebsOnSecurity.com, was traced back to a botnet. According to internet provider Level 3 Communications, the most commonly infected devices in this botnet were Dahua and Dahua OEM cameras and DVRs.[10][11][12] Nearly one million Dahua devices were infected with the BASHLITE malware.[10][13][14] A vulnerability in most of Dahua's cameras allowed "anyone to take full control of the devices' underlying Linux operating system just by typing a random username with too many characters."[10] This was exploited, and malware installed on devices that allowed them to be used in "both DDoS attacks as well as for extortion campaigns using ransomware."[10]

In March 2017 a backdoor into many Dahua cameras and DVRs was discovered by security researchers working for a Fortune 500 company.[15] The vulnerability had been activated on cameras within the Fortune 500 company's network, and the data trafficked to China through the company's firewall.[16] Using a web browser, the vulnerability allowed unauthorised people to remotely download a device's database of usernames and passwords and subsequently gain access to it.[17][18] Dahua issued a firmware update to fix the vulnerability in 11 of its products.[19] Security researchers discovered that the updated firmware contained the same vulnerability but that the vulnerability had been relocated to a different part of the code. This was characterized by the security researchers as deliberate deception.[16]

Dahua has played a role in the mass surveillance of Uyghurs in Xinjiang.[20][21] In October 2019, the Bureau of Industry and Security sanctioned Dahua for its role in surveillance of Uyghurs in Xinjiang and of other ethnic and religious minorities in China.[22][23]
