ASIS Show 2017 Final Report

Author: IPVM Team, Published on Sep 27, 2017

ASIS is in Dallas for 2017 and this is our final show report (compare to our 2016 ASIS show report).

When walking in, one is greeted with Dahua's advertising:

Fitting, given the big news of the week is Dahua (and their OEMs) recorders hit with global hack attacks.

Our unauthorized and unwanted variation on their marketing campaign:

Dahua's new poorly spun press release does not help. They should own the problem and communicate clearly the risks so partners are aware and are helped to fix the damage from Dahua shipping defective product with fundamental vulnerabilities. Issuing a firmware fix is the bare minimum that can be done and something that some OEMs are still struggling to get.
