TRENDnet Cameras Still Have Gaping Security Holes, 3 Years After FTC Settlement

By News Aggregator

By Robert Hackett

A bird’s-eye view of a playground. The inside of a convenience store. The entrance to a home.

All of these scenes, recorded live by Internet-connected surveillance cameras, have been open to snooping by even the most novice hackers, say researchers at Refirm Labs, a new startup founded by ex-National Security Agency workers. Anyone could remotely view these and scores of other remote locales through a vulnerability affecting certain surveillance cameras manufactured by TRENDnet, a California-based gadget-maker, they said.

Refirm is set to disclose this and other critical vulnerabilities affecting other devices, such as TRENDnet and Belkin routers as well as Dahua security cameras, on Wednesday. The company previewed its findings exclusively with Fortune in the lead-up to their publication.

“I wouldn’t even call this a hack because it doesn’t take any sophistication,” said Terry Dunlap, cofounder and CEO of Refirm, about the vulnerability, which affects TRENDnet’s TV-IP344PI camera model. Tuning into these cameras’ video feeds requires neither authorization nor authentication, but merely the knowledge of a device’s IP address, an easily obtained bit of identifying information, Dunlap said.

The findings call into question whether Trendnet has been taking the security of its products seriously enough in the wake of a 2014 settlement with the Federal Trade Commission that found its security to be lax. Trendnet was forced to abide by tightened regulatory standards–bolstering its information security program and submitting to regular security audits–after a severe vulnerability allowed attackers to monitor and expose hundreds of video feeds from faulty cameras.

The latest version of the TRENDnet camera still has flaws that allow attackers to gain total control of a given camera, to use it to launch other attacks, to “brick” or destroy it, to meddle with its video outputs, or to install new programming instructions on it, the researchers said.

You can watch a demonstration of how hackers can take advantage of some of the bugs here.

TRENDnet was notified of the vulnerabilities this week, Dunlap said.

We have just received this report, and TRENDnet is currently reviewing it to validate the authenticity of each claim,” said Emily Chae, a spokesperson for TRENDnet, in an email to Fortune on Tuesday. “All TRENDnet products are tested by an internal audit team, and TRENDnet cameras go under further testing by a leading 3rd party security group. We will release a patch soon for any confirmed vulnerabilities.”

Other findings by Refirm included security holes in Belkin routers (model F9K1124v1), TRENDnet routers (TEW-816DRM), and a Dahua security camera (IPC-HDW4300S). The bugs could allow hackers to hijack devices, to meddle with their inner workings, to siphon data from networks, or to burrow deeper inside of them, the researchers said.

Dunlap’s team notified Belkin about the vulnerabilities affecting its products in two reports released in June and Oct. by his previous company, Tactical Network Solutions. Belkin released patches soon after.

“All three vulnerabilities have been addressed and we recommend that Belkin customers update their routers to this latest firmware,” said Karen Sohl, a spokesperson for Belkin.

Like TRENDnet, Dahua is only just learning about the issues affecting their products. Refirm is urging people to avoid Dahua’s products entirely, since it says many of them include hardcoded credentials that allow anyone to tamper with a device’s firmware or install backdoors.

The Refirm team provocatively suggested that this may have been done intentionally.

“This vulnerability is not the result of an accidental logic error or poor programming practice, but rather an intentional backdoor placed into the product by the vendor,” the researchers wrote. “Given that many other Dahua products contain this exact same backdoor, we strongly recommend against connecting any Dahua products to critical or sensitive networks.”

Refirm didn’t explain why Dahua would want to such a thing, and Dahua did not immediately respond to Fortune’s request for comment.

In most cases, Dunlap says, “if developers implemented secure coding practices from the very start, a significant number of IoT [Internet of Things] attacks would not exist today.”

Get Data Sheet, Fortune‘s technology newsletter

Where patches are not available, as is the case for TRENDnet and Dahua, Refirm advises people to sequester their cameras and routers away from internal networks, to limit their access to sensitive resources, or to remove them entirely until further notice.

Juniper Networks disrupts optical market with industry’s first open, disaggregated optical line System

By News Aggregator

By Zenobia Hedge

Juniper Networks, a provider in automated, scalable and secure networks, became the first networking vendor to announce it is disaggregating optical line system hardware from network control software, rolling out a new optical solution that brings unprecedented levels of flexibility, cost control and multi-layer visibility to packet-optical transport.

Juniper’s end-to-end metro packet transport portfolio gives service providers the necessary building blocks to deploy new services built on cloud, 5G, IoT, multi-gigabit broadband and other advanced technologies.

Closed, proprietary optical-transport networks that bind the transponder, optical line system and control software together significantly hinder service providers’ ability to deploy an agile service delivery model. Juniper’s new cloud-grade solution, including an open, programmable optical line system, as well as a microservices-based management and control platform, allows operators to deploy any transponder solution to keep costs down, optimise the photonic layer control plane, and maintain unmatched service continuity.

Aligning with Juniper’s Cloud-Grade Networking initiative announced in June, the company’s Programmable Photonic Layer open line system features the new TCX1000 Series Programmable ROADM.

Combining open, standards-based application programming interfaces (APIs), the new proNX optical director management and control platform makes it easier for customers to deploy coherent DWDM transponders – whether from Juniper, a service provider or third parties. Taking this platform-first approach, Juniper customers can rest assured they are operating a future-proof system, free from vendor lock-in.

News highlights:

Juniper programmable photonic layer featuring the new TCX1000 series programmable ROADM: Part of a complete open line system solution, the TCX1000 Programmable ROADM, enabled by Lumentum, is a colorless, directionless, flex-grid ready programmable ROADM that allows operators to seamlessly upgrade to emerging high-capacity bit rates – 100G, 200G, 400G and beyond – without having to upgrade line system hardware. Operators can now confidently disaggregate the line system hardware from the transponder layer and from the photonic layer control plane to better optimise the network for use cases such as data centre interconnect.
proNX optical director microservices-based optical network management and control software platform: Building on the strengths of proNX service manager’s automated service activation and network management capabilities, proNX Optical Director uses a microservices-based architecture to enable operators to scale more effectively and simply integrate customer and third-party applications in an agile operational environment. Additionally, proNX Optical director uses a standards-based YANG API to integrate seamlessly with Juniper Networks® NorthStar Controller, providing full network visibility and coordination from Layer 0 to Layer 3.

Donyel Jones-Williams

Donyel Jones-Williams, director of Service Provider Portfolio Marketing, Juniper Networks says,“The continuously evolving dynamics presented by the cloud requires that all elements of the network be agile, open and easily disaggregated – and Juniper is ensuring that the optical layer follows suit. Closed systems that prevent true agility abound, but Juniper understands the importance of disaggregation and we’re excited to give customers the power to move faster within the cloud era with a true turnkey solution for end-to-end packet optical network operation.”

“Network operators require flexible, disaggregated optical line solutions supporting best-of-breed coherent modules. With the Programmable Photonic Layer and proNX Optical director, Juniper becomes the first vendor to offer centralised, disaggregated open optical line system control software from the network […]

Despite new silicon, 802.11ax isn’t coming to the enterprise for a while

By News Aggregator

By Jon Gold

The next great leap forward in Wi-Fi got a little closer to reality Tuesday with Broadcom’s announcement of a new family of chips designed to comply with the not-yet-finalized 802.11ax standard, but you might not need to game-plan for the arrival of 802.11ax products in the enterprise for quite awhile.

However, thanks to several factors, including an unusual adoption cycle, the capabilities of existing Wi-Fi hardware and the standards process itself, 802.11ax is unlikely to take enterprise wireless customers by storm before late 2018, according to experts.
