Study of another IP camera reveals serious problems
An in-depth analysis of yet another Internet-connected security camera has revealed a host of software problems.
Alex Farrant and Neil Biggs, both of the research team for Context Information Security in the U.K, analyzed Motorola’s Focus 73, an outdoor security camera. Images and video taken by the camera can be delivered to a mobile phone app.
They found they could take control of the camera remotely and control its movement, redirect the video feed and figure out the password for the wireless network the device is connected to.
One attack exploits a cross-site request forgery problem. It was possible to scan for camera connected to the Internet and then get a reverse root shell.
