According to foreign media reports, recently, with the help of cameras, video recorders, printers, wireless routers and speakers and other daily equipment to launch cyber attacks on the potential risks of Internet things sounded the alarm.
 
The problem with equipment vendors is that they are not ready to thwart hackers.
 
China Taipei video equipment manufacturers AV Tech situation, revealing the hardware factory 10 years ago and the current gap. Market competition from mainland China, making AV Tech profit is compressed to about 1/10. The same as peers, AV Tech products have begun to touch, so that their cameras, video recorders connected to the Internet, user-friendly remote access to them.
 
However, they are not good at network security, making its products on the hacker undefended". Internet security company Covata CEO Trent Telford (Trent Telford) said, "the harsh reality is that the network security is not even on many manufacturers consider, security will eventually receive more attention, but for this generation of Internet users may be too late."
 
By 2020, it is estimated that up to 30 billion devices will be net - they may be at risk of being attacked. When the one hundred thousand consumer devices are under control, the formation of the so-called Botnet, PayPal, Spotify and Twitter and other target sites to attack, the danger is highlighted.
 
Network security experts say this is just the beginning. They have found a new malware designed to find and infect unsafe equipment. According to Internet security consulting firm IOActive executives Daniel Misner (Daniel Miessler), said botnets can be used in advertising fraud and e-mail extortion and other malicious activities.
 
Flashpoint, a network security consultancy, said that part of the Botnet, which launched last month's massive cyber attacks, was launched this week to launch denial of service attacks on the u.s.. However, the two candidate sites are not down. Although the researchers found no trace of the AV Tech device in the Botnet, they found that these devices vulnerable to attack.
 
Hungarian security company Search-Lab executives Jeldey Eberhart (Gergely Eberhardt) published Bowen said he used a year to AV Tech informed of the 14 security vulnerabilities in their products, but did not get any response. Last month, Hart erber disclosed these defects. This and other distributed denial of service attack messages, to AV Tech sounded the alarm. AV Tech Office of the president's special assistant Dick Lee (Dick Lee) said, to tell the truth, in the past, AV Tech did not care about the attack and found such defects. This experience has greatly enhanced the level of our internal vigilance, which is a serious problem faced by monitoring equipment manufacturers."
After being named by security experts, China's surveillance camera maker has recalled thousands of devices, but it also threatened to take legal action against the company or company that has been defamatory.
 
Qualcomm said it was considering the use of new technologies, including machine learning to improve the security of networking equipment. Qualcomm executive chairman Paul Jacob (Paul Jacobs) local time on Monday to the Reuters, said, we will be implanted in the hardware some of the basic technology, monitoring equipment is not in the implementation of the program? Access memory is abnormal? It is very important for the Internet of things to ensure the safety of users and to update the equipment."
ARM, HUAWEI and PHILPS are among the UK's Internet Security foundation. Moor John Moore, founder of the Internet of things Security Foundation (John), said the main goal is to simplify the relevant documents, so that engineers will really read these documents. It released the first version of the document, the original 300-400 page content is reduced to 30 pages.
 
For AV Tech, the higher security may be a way to achieve competitive differentiation with mainland competitors. Dick Lee said, "this is a good opportunity. For these monitoring products, the requirements for safety is the most important, the cost will not be too high".
