The study reviewed the models
for standard security weaknesses, such as hard-coded accounts with default
passwords, unencrypted video and audio feeds, commands sent in clear text over
the Internet, and accessing to receive unauthorized control through remote
devices and similar kind of interfaces. Basic fact is vendor disclosure process is well established and clearly focused on
ensuring its devices are safe for consumers. Attackers may be able to
leverage an exposure or vulnerability to gain and maintain persistent access to
an IoT device. A compromised device can be used to pivot to other computers or
networks by taking advantage of the unsegmented, fully trusted nature of some
networks. This can put multiple networks to which the device connects, and the
resources provided through those networks, at risk

Alternatives

Good alternative to wireless devices are wired intercom systems which
are connected via cable or the existing electric circuits of the apartment.
There is also the option of wired surveillance cameras. These systems include
cameras and small screen, giving you the ability to have visual and auditory
contact with your child’s room. if intercom system is battery powered or
hard-wired into the wall. Systems that use wall outlets or batteries require
little technical skills to remove, while systems that are hardwired into your
wall will be more complex to remove so alternatives are possible right now.

Proposed Solution

As
per case study Rapid7 is a leading provider of security data and analytics
solutions that enable organizations to implement an active, analytics-driven
approach to cyber security. We combine our extensive experience in security
data and analytics and deep insight into attacker behaviors and techniques to
make sense of the wealth of data available to organizations about their IT
environments and users. Based on research solutions empower organizations to
prevent attacks by providing visibility into vulnerabilities and to rapidly
detect compromises, respond to breaches, and correct the underlying causes of
attacks. If no Internet connectivity and uses encryption
to protect the video and audio stream sent between the camera and a dedicated
handset. There’s a reasonable chance even these devices will contain critical
weaknesses, but they still represent an improvement over Internet-connected
monitors, since attackers will have to be in physical proximity of the people
being targeted.

Recommendations

Your webcam may have a password, as well. If so, use it.  And, as always, pick a proper password. Don’t
leave it blank, and don’t leave it set to the default value, which crooks
probably know already. If you aren’t sure how to set the password, try the
vendor’s support forums. Rapid7 advises people who have already
bought an Internet-connected device to monitor the manufacturer’s website for
any security advisories or patches. The problem with that advice is that people
in need of a baby monitor usually have their hands full with other
responsibilities. Strong encryption can pose challenges to law enforcement
access to data. Rapid7 believes it could play a valuable role in working with
companies to develop security patching guidelines and organize an industry body
to foster cyber security standards development and collaboration across vendors
and their supply chains.
