Electronic lock maker clashes with security firm over software flaws
The maker of a widely used electronic lock has taken issue with a security company’s criticism of one of its flagship products.
IOActive, a Seattle-based security consultancy, published an advisory alleging several security flaws in electronic locks made by CyberLock, of Corvallis, Oregon.
CyberLock, which received advance notice of the problems from IOActive, contends it wasn’t given enough time or information prior to IOActive’s warning. Mike Davis, the IOActive researcher who found the problems, published two letters said to have been sent by CyberLock’s lawyers to IOActive.
