after leaks
The Dutch Consumers’ Association has called on users of Foscam cameras to update the software after several leaks have been detected that allow remote cameras to be taken over.

The Consumers’ Association publishes the call after a security company, called VDOO, had already warned last month about leaks that make 55 camera models vulnerable to remote take-over. The Consumentenbond says that it has subsequently found leaks in the baby camera Fosbaby and the P1 variant of this model. An overview can be found on the site of the association. Below this message is an overview with the necessary links to the updates that Foscam released mid-May.

However, according to the Consumers’ Association, these have not been sufficiently brought to the attention and, moreover, are not installed automatically, requiring action from users. The union writes: “Foscam points users to the availability of the update via a notification in their app, but this notification is clogged and small, and a similar design is used for other notifications, such as marketing messages.” The organization says that Foscam has, after insisting, promised to bring the update to the attention.

It is not the first time that leaks have been detected in Foscam products. For example, security firm F-Secure found eighteen leaks a year ago, which also allowed attackers to take over devices. Foscam issued patches and came up with a response.
