As a home security device, smart cameras are entering thousands of households. Some criminals take advantage of the security loopholes in some smart cameras to spy on the private lives of other people’s homes and sell them publicly on the Internet after recording. On October 30, according to media reports, in June this year, the Taizhou Internet police inspected and found that a large number of pornographic surveillance videos in private places such as living rooms, bedrooms, and fitting rooms were sold online.
After investigation, it was found that these criminals packaged and sold the cracked camera account and password. Subsequently,The police successively arrested 34 people including the main criminal Ma and the agent offline, and seized more than 8,600 camera accounts involved in the case involving more than 1.1 million yuan.
Security experts believe that blocking the privacy and security black holes in smart cameras requires multi-party joint prevention, joint governance and close coordination.Only by constructing a three-dimensional defense system can the security vulnerabilities of smart cameras be “patched.”
Vendors are the first hurdle to plug privacy security vulnerabilities. Vendors cannot just compete for the market and reduce their technical security investment in malicious code protection, cloud encryption, weak password verification, and access control. Once a security incident occurs, businesses will Lose more consumers.
