Logitech IoT Harmony Hub Fixes Several Security Flaws

Harmony Hub-based products, which include Harmony Elite, Home Hub, Ultimate Hub, Home Control, Pro, Smart Control, Smart Keyboard, Ultimate Home, and Harmony Hub are potentially vulnerable to four types of vulnerabilities that can be combined to gain root access to a device via SSH.

Harmony Hub is used by thousands of customers to control smart locks and thermostats within their homes and offices.

Robert Brown, Director of Services for Verismic said, “Opening your front door to your home or office using a security flaw is usually reserved for Hollywood films. As Internet of Things technology evolves, it’s not just Windows or third-party software you need to patch, you will soon need to patch your home thermostat or smart camera. If you are having trouble identifying your IoT devices in your home or office, start a trial of Syxsense today.”

Lenovo Code Execution Flaw Revealed

On Friday, May 4, Lenovo announced a couple of flaws with its popular ThinkPad line and System X servers. One bug is tied to an authentication flaw in the Secure Boot process; and the other to a vulnerability that would allow for arbitrary code execution. As a result, an attacker with physical access to the system could boot unsigned, malicious code onto the device which could deliver an attack or infect the system. We are not aware of any known exploits currently being used in the wild however we are recommending our clients to update their systems urgently.

SmartCam Cameras – Unauthorized Remote Viewing

Kaspersky’s ICS-CERT team has conducted its research on Hanwha SNH-V6410PN/PNW SmartCam devices, but the same firmware is used for multiple camera models — different features in the firmware are active depending on the model — which means many of the company’s products are likely affected by these vulnerabilities.

Researchers have analyzed these devices and discovered a significant number of flaws. One of the flaws found by Kaspersky can be exploited to register cameras that have yet to be registered. This not only prevents legitimate owners from registering and using their cameras, but also allows hackers to take control of the cameras they have registered.
