Displaying items by tag: IP Camera

About a month ago we reported on an statement by the FTC in regards to a security flaw in certain models of TRENDNet IP cameras. The statement was a “what he said” move considering that all of the items they talked about have already been done by TRENDNet. We also noted that the FTC was less concerned about the actual presence of flaws than they were with a product being labeled as secure when it was not. At the time of the statement we remarked that the flaws found in TREDNNet products were very common in embedded devices. In fact we recently reported that a similar flaw exists in many residential firewalls and routers. It seems that companies building products with an embedded OS just do not know how to keep things secure.
