Trendnet, a manufacturer of IP security cameras, has recently found that some of its network cameras leave video they transmit over the web unencrypted, even if a password was used. What this means for the owners of these Internet-connected cameras is that anyone with the right know-how may be able to gain access to a user’s video feed. Potential hackers only need to know the IP address of the vulnerable camera to gain access.
This issue affects a small number of units sold by BrickHouse Security over the last few years, and TrendNet assures us that it is hard at work revising the firmware. TrendNet expects a security patch to be available this week. If you have any questions or concerns, or simply need help with the updated firmware, you can call Trendnet at 866-520-2348 or navigate to Trendnet.com.
BrickHouse Security has suspended sales of the affected units.
