Foscam Shenzhen currently has not responded and has not yet provided any patch or fix to address the vulnerabilities. (Source: Arstechnica https://arstechnica.com/security/2017/06/internet-cameras-expose-private-video-feeds-and-remote-controls/)

The vulnerabilities affect "Foscam" branded cameras and cameras manufactured by China-based Shenzhen Foscam only. The vulnerabilities do not affect Amcrest or FDT branded cameras which are produced by a separate factory and R&D team totally unrelated to Foscam Shenzhen. Amcrest/FDT split off from Foscam Shenzhen in 2015/2016 due to issues relating to distribution, security and quality control and are totally unaffected by these latest vulnerabiltiies which affect China-based Shenzhen Foscam.
