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.
Tenable advises Blink camera owners to allow automatic updates to ensure that they are keeping up to date on software patches. Tenable plans to release more details on how to recognize a camera that is already compromised.
