Dahua Technology Co., Ltd. is a provider of video surveillance products and services, with the world’s 2nd largest market share, according to a 2015 IMS report.[citation needed]

Controversies[edit]

In September 2016, the largest DDoS attack to date, on KrebsOnSecurity.com, was traced back to a botnet. According to Internet provider Level 3, the most commonly infected devices in this botnet were Dahua cameras and DVRs.[4][5]

HackRead reports that over one million Dahua cameras have been infected with the BASHLITE malware.[6]
