All the major camera manufacturers in the world have suffered from the exposure of exploitable coding flaws in firmware as they have been examined more and more closely by cybersecurity experts. Yet despite the industry-wide cybersecurity challenges, no other company faces the same level of scrutiny as that directed at the world’s largest surveillance manufacturer, Hikvision.

When investigating the media claims through the “US Dept of Homeland Security’s register of Common Vulnerabilities & Exposure” it was found that there is only one potential issue out of all reported issues on IP CCTV Cameras that relates to Hikvision.

Further in response to the ONE camera vulnerability allegation earlier this year, Hikvision Oceania’s managing director, Daniel Huang said, a security researcher found a firmware vulnerability and reported it to Hikvision the next day. “Only 6 days later, we released patched firmware and notified our integrator partners via special bulletin and the public via notices on our website,” Huang said. “All this happened before the vulnerability was disclosed to the public.”
