Security Researchers: Baby Monitors Prone to Hacking
With the help of Jeffrey Zwirn, the security firm Rapid7 has discovered common security flaws with nine Internet-connected baby video monitors. For example, the Philips brand assigns the same default username and password to its monitoring cameras, meaning an uninitiated system could be hacked into. As a result of the findings, Philips plans to address its products’ vulnerabilities. Jeff Zwirn, who pens the “Security Science” column, was on Fox News discussing baby video monitoring hacking vulnerabilities.
