Hikvision submitted a cybersecurity audit to the FCC revealing the widely used iVMS-4200 application automatically connects to servers in China.
The audit found that these "connections [were] associated with identifying software updates" and that "corrections will be included in a future update of iVMS-4200." Neither the auditor nor Hikvision commented on when these connections to China will be corrected.
iVMS-4200 is a free client widely used for Hikvision customers to view and manage video, which connects to and has access to many cameras in systems.
