Blink Cameras Found with Multiple Vulnerabilities

Researchers at the company Tenable found three broad types of vulnerabilities in Amazon’s popular home security cameras, Blink. The three vulnerabilities include one that is not practical, one that is interesting to researchers, and one that poses a threat to customers. According to researchers, the Blink camera’s design makes it easy for an outsider to connect to the device and eventually control it. The most serious vulnerability involves network parameters passed to the camera that are not properly sanitized before execution.
