Axis 5 Vulnerabilities Examined

Author: IPVM Team, Published on Dec 01, 2017

A group of vulnerabilities, including a new discovery from bashis (who previously found one of the Dahua backdoors and the 2016 Axis critical vulnerability), have been found in several Axis products. While some are relatively minor, others could be used to build complex exploits to take over a camera.

We have cataloged these vulnerabilities in this note, and provide details on exploit potential and risks users of Axis cameras may face.
