Anyone having trouble with the Hik 4500 app? It will not correct to any recorders.

Same here. Looks like every single client of mine is down. Man I'm going to get a lot of calls today :(

FYI, if you input the external ip address for a system, it'll work. It's just the HiDDNS service that is down.

Ugh. I got a couple calls already.

I will have to try the external ip. Thanks for the tip.

I experienced the same issue this weekend. I assumed the hik-online server was down. I have a dozen or so clients with hikvision systems installed - 3 of which use hik-online ddns and the rest are static. All static addresses worked fine but the ddns NVRs were inaccessible. Additionally, I have a single IP camera at my front door utilizing Hik-online ddns... when it came back online the image looked faded and someone wrote HACKED on the OSD !!

The other 3 clients have HikVision NVRs and appear normal.

I have attached a couple of screen shots of the hacked camera. Has anyone else experienced this vulnerability? I don't see anything posted on HikVisions website regarding this issue yet...
