Re: Amcrest products and KRACK vulnerability

I hadn't checked in on this in a long time, figured I'd ask a (sales) rep via chat today for an update... more of the same.

Re: Amcrest products and KRACK vulnerability

I'm beyond civility; throw your Amcrest devices in the trash or dissect them for spare parts. If you absolutely must keep them, set their DNS servers to random private or APIPA addresses (169.254.255.253, 169.254.255.254). I went a step further, dumped them in their own VLAN/subnet and configured an...

Re: Amcrest products and KRACK vulnerability

Bumping this up because it has yet to be addressed and potential new customers should be aware.

Re: Amcrest products and KRACK vulnerability

@markplewis my statements regarding them being a security-centric company were merely a deduction of their supposed mission statement that I wrongly took at face value. It was said to imply that the type of behavior they're exhibiting is a bit of a joke for a company who touts their security measure...

Re: Amcrest products and KRACK vulnerability

For the time being, I have removed Amcrest from my offering for the smaller environments that I work with who absolutely require wireless IP cameras (PoE is a far more secure solution). I have also strongly suggested that admins in these environments disable the wireless function on these cameras wh...

Re: Amcrest products and KRACK vulnerability

@Neptune, t84a's whole debate platform is pure conjecture; (s)he has shown that (s)he is doesn't fully (or isn't willing to) understand or accept the risk/flaw at hand. Because I appreciate reciprocation, I typically try to be helpful; that being said, I pump the brakes when I sense close-mindedness...

Re: Amcrest products and KRACK vulnerability

@t84a (I don't think tagging works, but I want you to know this is directed at you), give it a rest. If you're not concerned with it, move on and stop with the conjecture. Amcrest's history is precisely why we are concerned with the lack of acknowledgement/response from them. Do you know their histo...

Re: Amcrest products and KRACK vulnerability

While I feel your pain, I'd say over 80% of the devices are still vulnerable. Andriods are NOT safe. Apple is in BETA. ASUS has released nothing. If you're that concerned, stop using all your wifi devices. No one isreally protected yet. Both Google and Apple have released statements about addressin...
