While the companies affect by this are irrelevant to US Government sales, proponents of Chinese manufacturers banned will surely use this as evidence that there are manufacturers with a worse track record than Hikua, and proof of the unfairness of the ban.”
In regards to the last paragraph in the article, wouldnt this be evidence to support a larger more encompassing ban on China rather than a way to garner support for companies that were arguably unfairly banned?
XM = Good Enough for US Military Bases, According to congress
I know you aim to be clever but this is not. XM is simply under the radar because they have no real path to US military bases. Hikvision and Dahua do because they have large local sales teams and big marketing budgets.
Note: The password hash of the “default” user is “OxhlwSG8” (stored in /mtd/Config/Account1). The hash algorithm was reverse engineered before and is implemented on GitHub. Basically, it is a result of MD5(password) and compressed even further. For complex passwords it should be more efficient to find a hash collision than to crack the password. Interestingly, the same hash algorithm is used in products from Dahua Technology. Possibly Xiongmai copied from Dahua or the hash algorithm is part of the Huawei HiSilicon SoC SDK both vendors use?
Not only the password hash is exactly the same as Dahua, even the path to the password file is almost the same as reported (maybe they forget '/mnt' before '/mtd') and indeed same filename.
