Amcrest IP Cameras


Important Message from Foscam Digital Technologies Regarding US Sales & Service

 

UPDATE: In early June Foscam Digital had been notified of 18 security vulnerabilities that existed on cameras manufactured by Shenzhen Foscam (Source: F-Secure Report http://images.news.f-secure.com/Web/FSecure/%7B43df9e0d-20a8-404a-86d0-70dcca00b6e5%7D_vulnerabilities-in-foscam-IP-cameras_report.pdf ). 

 

 Foscam Shenzhen initially did not address the vulnerabilities for several months (Source: Arstechnica https://arstechnica.com/security/2017/06/internet-cameras-expose-private-video-feeds-and-remote-controls/). However, on June 14th, shortly after the vulnerabilities were communicated directly to end-users by Foscam Digital in order to pressure Foscam Shenzhen to take action, Foscam Shenzhen released a firmware update response available here: http://www.foscam.com/important-security-firmware-announcement.html

 

The models affected include the following:

C1 Lite

(Source CVE Details report https://www.cvedetails.com/cve/CVE-2017-7648/ )


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 manufactured by a totally separate and unrelated US-based entity.
