Genetec Self-Discloses Critical Vulnerability

By: Sean Patton, Published on Jul 31, 2018

In an unprecedented move for the video surveillance industry, Genetec has self-disclosed a critical software vulnerability across Security Center and Stratocast.

In this report we examine:

  • What the vulnerability is
  • What versions it impacts
  • Why they have released limited details
  • Why they disclosed it publicly even though no third party forced them to
  • Genetec's criticism of Chinese manufacturers / Hikvision vs their own critical vulnerability
