There have been reports explaining how Hikvision and Dahua might be spying on you. At ReFirm Labs, our research and findings on the firmware in these cameras showed the US ban on these surveillance cameras is warranted.
Centrifuge is instrumental in identifying critical flaws and vulnerabilities in firmware binaries. Given a real-world firmware image containing hundreds or thousands of files, the ability to hone in on a handful of high risk binaries and to quickly identify flaws inside specific functions contained in those binaries is essential for those looking to secure their own products, as well as those attempting to exploit embedded devices.
Manufacturers are to blame for the proliferation of IoT attacks by making these IoT devices easy to exploit. The sad thing is, these attacks are easily avoidable without any additional cost to the manufacturer.
Having cybersecurity insurance is becoming common with many companies. Recently, the co-founder of ReFirm Labs, Terry Dunlap, sat down with American Express and shared his thoughts about the new trend. During the meeting with American Express, Terry discussed who he believed needs cybersecurity insurance the most, why they need it, and in what ways it can be beneficial for companies to have.
In case you missed our live Lunch & Learn event in January on weaponizing vulnerabilities found in a D-Link camera, here’s your chance to watch the entire one-hour talk. Buckle up! It’s fairly technical.
Imagine this scenario: A teenager modifies the firmware code on a remote device to change signals on several trams for pubic transportation. A train crashes causing a derailment in which 12 people were injured. Not possible you say?
Today ReFirm Labs is excited to announce a new feature available to all platform subscribers. Software Bill of Materials powered by the Centrifuge Platform will generate a list of open source components that are present in a firmware image by comparing the files found within the firmware and matching them up with components.
A firmware vulnerability for the TP-Link WL-WA850RE WiFi Range Extender recently caught our attention. But we found a much more serious bug that allows a remote attacker to completely control the device.
Securing firmware with ReFirm Labs is the topic for this episode of the Recorded Future podcast. We talk with co-founder Terry Dunlap and his colorful past!
It’s our hope that this rather sensationally-titled piece will actually provide some down-to-earth developer basics for helping to make our connected world at least a little safer.
Firmware Hackers Find New IoT Vulnerabilities Firmware… it’s running on practically every internet connected device. And because it cannot be protected by traditional security products, it has become a favored target for hackers and state sponsored actors....
As the use of IoT devices continues to spread throughout the healthcare sector it is important to remember to increase IoT device security is vital to ensure patient safety.
