Cam free backdoor
The password in configuration file issue, meanwhile, received a high severity 8.8 rating.
The warning reiterates a bulletin the company, which is partially owned by the Chinese government, sent customers in March.
“Per agreement with Hikvision I am delaying the disclosure,” Montecrypto wrote, “Hikvision promised to responsibly disclose and resolve the vulnerability.
They are working with ICS-CERT and other organizations, and it is expected that more details will be communicated soon via those channels.
If nothing is communicated in the next few weeks, I will proceed with full disclosure.” According to IVPM, a video surveillance publication that’s been keeping track of the vulnerabilities, it’s believed the backdoor affects millions of cameras, “given Hikvision’s own regular declarations of shipping tens of millions of cameras.” According to the company, until customers apply the respective firmware patch, the following cameras are still vulnerable: Hikvision, via US-CERT, warned customers Friday that trying to update some “grey market” cameras – devices sold through unauthorized channels, thus with unauthorized firmware – could result in complications.
Also, the configuration file can only be exported by the admin account.
The company told customers and partners in early March the vulnerabilities were caused called “a small piece of code.” Bashis, an independent researcher, found the issues, a backdoor that allowed remote unauthorized admin access via the web, and disclosed them via the Full Disclosure mailing list on March 6.
A spokesman from Dahua confirmed the information in US-CERT’s advisory early Monday and said that customers can download updated firmware from the “Device Upgrade Kit” section of the company’s website to mitigate the vulnerabilities.
Reports of successful hacks against Internet of Things (Io T) devices have been on the rise.
Most of these efforts have involved demonstrating how to gain access to such a device or to break through its security barrier.
