Dahua IP Camera Vulnerability Could Let Attackers Take Full Control Over Devices

Dahua IP Camera Vulnerability Could Let Attackers Take Full Control Over Devices

Jul 29, 2022
Details have been shared about a security vulnerability in Dahua's Open Network Video Interface Forum ( ONVIF ) standard implementation, which, when exploited, can lead to seizing control of IP cameras.  Tracked as CVE-2022-30563 (CVSS score: 7.4), the "vulnerability could be abused by attackers to compromise network cameras by sniffing a previous unencrypted ONVIF interaction and replaying the credentials in a new request towards the camera," Nozomi Networks  said  in a Thursday report. The issue, which was  addressed  in a patch released on June 28, 2022,  impacts  the following products - Dahua ASI7XXX: Versions prior to v1.000.0000009.0.R.220620 Dahua IPC-HDBW2XXX: Versions prior to v2.820.0000000.48.R.220614 Dahua IPC-HX2XXX: Versions prior to v2.820.0000000.48.R.220614 ONVIF governs the development and use of an open standard for how IP-based physical security products such as video surveillance cameras and access control systems can communicate with one an
Critical Bugs and Backdoor Found in GeoVision's Fingerprint and Card Scanners

Critical Bugs and Backdoor Found in GeoVision's Fingerprint and Card Scanners

Jun 25, 2020
GeoVision, a Taiwanese manufacturer of video surveillance systems and IP cameras, recently patched three of the four critical flaws impacting its card and fingerprint scanners that could've potentially allowed attackers to intercept network traffic and stage man-in-the-middle attacks. In a report shared exclusively with The Hacker News, enterprise security firm Acronis said it discovered the vulnerabilities last year following a routine security audit of a Singapore-based major retailer. "Malicious attackers can establish persistence on the network and spy on internal users, steal data — without ever getting detected," Acronis said. "They can reuse your fingerprint data to enter your home and/or personal devices, and photos can be easily reused by malicious actors to perpetrate identity theft based on biometric data." In all, the flaws affect at least 6 device families, with over 2,500 vulnerable devices discovered online across Brazil, US, Germany, Ta
Xiaomi Cameras Connected to Google Nest Expose Video Feeds From Others

Xiaomi Cameras Connected to Google Nest Expose Video Feeds From Others

Jan 03, 2020
Internet-connected devices have been one of the most remarkable developments that have happened to humankind in the last decade. Although this development is a good thing, it also stipulates a high security and privacy risk to personal information. In one such recent privacy mishap, smart IP cameras manufactured by Chinese smartphone maker Xiaomi found mistakenly sharing surveillance footage of Xiaomi users with other random users without any permission. The issue appears to affect Xiaomi IP cameras only when streamed through connected Google's Nest Hub, which came into light when a Reddit user claimed that his Google Nest Hub is apparently pulling random feeds from other users instead of his own Xiaomi Mijia cameras. The Reddit user also shared some photos showing other people's homes, an older adult sleeping on a chair, and a baby sleeping in its crib that appeared on his Nest Hub screen. It appears the issue doesn't reside in Google products; instead, it c
Hard-coded Passwords Make Hacking Foscam ‘IP Cameras’ Much Easier

Hard-coded Passwords Make Hacking Foscam 'IP Cameras' Much Easier

Jun 08, 2017
Security researchers have discovered over a dozen of vulnerabilities in tens of thousands of web-connected cameras that can not be protected just by changing their default credentials. Vulnerabilities found in two models of IP cameras from China-based manufacturer Foscam allow attackers to take over the camera, view video feeds, and, in some cases, even gain access to other devices connected to a local network. Researchers at security firm F-Secure discovered 18 vulnerabilities in two camera models — one sold under the Foscam C2 and other under Opticam i5 HD brand — that are still unpatched despite the company was informed several months ago. In addition to the Foscam and Opticam brands, F-Secure also said the vulnerabilities were likely to exist in 14 other brands that use Foscam internals, including Chacon, 7links, Netis, Turbox, Thomson, Novodio, Nexxt, Ambientcam, Technaxx, Qcam, Ivue, Ebode and Sab. The flaws discovered in the IP cameras includes: Insecure default cr
