Quite likely - that firmware will probably have the 'Hikvision backdoor' vulnerability, depending on the specific model.


Are they still connected to NVR PoE ports?

Assuming they are -
Install SADP so that you can inventory the cameras and see some of their detail.

Connect the PC to an unused NVR PoE port, and note down from SADP the cameras IP addresses and the associated firmware versions.
The addresses are likely to be in the range 192.168.254.x
Change the PC IP address to be in the same range, for example 192.168.254.100
In the browser, use this URL to hopefully extract a configuration file :
http://<camera_IP_address>/System/configurationFile?auth=YWRtaW46MTEK
replacing the IP address with a selected one from your list.
Maybe do this for each of the firmware versions.

Zip up any extracted configuration files and attach here, I should be able to decrypt and decode them to extract the camera password.
Got the file, found the offline decrypter, and found the plain text password in the file. Thanks a bunch for the instructions !

Thanks! Works great =)
I remind you, everyone can use the password search form from the configuration file received when using the http request: / <Camera IP address> / System / configurationFile? auth = YWRtaW46MTEK
on this page in my blog.
Appreciate the administrator's time, work independently

Would be really thankfull for helping me out with this situation :

I have about 15 cameras DS-2CD2T42WD-I5 which as understand doesn't have the 'Hikvision backdoor vulnerability' ,
firmware V5.4.5 build 170724 - not sure where they bought from ,
I tried Hikvision support and they wrote all cameras came from unknown source and can't help me,
serial number for example:DS-2CD2T42WD-I520170222BBWR718236562
Im trying to reset the camera:
1.Hard reset - not an option , no reset button ( i open it)
2.I test it with the reset tool and got unauthorize request
also tried getting configuration file:
pop up a log-in screen .

3.with no other alternative Im trying flashing the firmware with TFTP:
I download firmware ipc_r6_en_std_5.5.82_190220_0.zip
I set on my laptop IP as 192.0.0.128 - connect both the laptop and the camera on same switch - disable wifi.
run tftpserv and it stuck on first line .
The camera IP as SDAP shows is on 192.168.254.7 and i really don't know how i can change the IP so TFTP could work ...

Have come across a DS-7216HGHI-SH at a client's site, happily recording away, yet no-one knows the password :sigh:

Software version is V3.3.2build 151123 according to iVMS4200

The serial is DS-7216HGHI-SH162015xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxWCVU but I'm not clear which bit I remove before pasting the rest into the reset password code generator page. Just take off the initial DS-7216HGHI-SH or is there more to it than that? I tried a power-cycle, checked the start date & time was today according to SADP, but the code generated just gave me a "device rejected" error when I try to sign in at SADP

Thanks for any tips!

can someome assist in reseting some hikvision camera password..
Only Hikvision support persons can create the response to those XML password reset request files.

The product info for the DS-2CD2185FWD suggests it has a reset button.
This will be inside, on the circuit board.
Press the button, power on the camera, wait 30seconds or more and release.
SADP should then show the camera as 'Inactive' allowing you to create your own strong password to 'Activate' it.

hello community,

i´m from germany bavaria. Nice to get into this forum.

I have problems with this camera model DS-2CD2332-I
i tried your tool but it did not work. and then i tried to export the xml files which i sended to hikvision support. But the codes which they sent to meback did not work too.

Did someone have the same problems? i think it is the earlier model which has no reset button.

Hi there

After you extract the xml file, you need to keep the system on until you receive the response from Hikvision as the new xml file will be time based linked to your original file.

If you turn off the system before you receive the new file, it won't work.

What firmware version are you using?

If it's 5.4.0 or earlier, you will be able to extract the configuration file using the 'Hikvision backdoor vulnerability' which can then be decrytpted and the password extracted.

With a PC on the same IP address range as the camera, put this URL into the browser, replacing the camera actual IP address as needed.
Zip up the resultant exported configuration file, and attach here so it can be decrypted and decoded to extract the admin password.
