Re: IP3M-941/IP2M-841E/IP3M-HX2 Firmware Release

Speaking of IP3M-943 and new/fixed firmwares. Nearly three months ago I contacted Amcrest regarding a security fix they implemented on IPM-721 (in particular, CVE-2017-8229) that also affects IP3M-943. Until this day I did not get an answer and in the last two and a half years no firmware was releas...

This was 20 days ago. So, I wonder if the status is the same or at least Amcrest is beta testing firmwares.

Re: Amcrest products and KRACK vulnerability

The only thing listed in the release notes is either "various security improvements" or "security improvements", something of this magnitude needs to be specifically called out. I would say anything related to security fixes / bugs / etc. should be fully disclaimed. Months ago, ...

V2.400.AC01.15.R Firmware Changelog

Hi. Possible Melvin can forward my request to Amcrest. I noticed the link to IP3M-943 V2.400.AC01.15.R 07/31/17 changelog is not valid. It says Access Denied. The URL doesn't finish with .txt like it normally does. Even if I change that it doesn't work. I like to read what the new firmware fixes. Th...

Re: Adding live feed to a website

@ctopal For security reasons, I recommend you to create a new user with Live permission only otherwise if you expose your admin account password somebody could hack your camera.

Devil's Ivy vulnerability

Hi.

There is a great article explaining this vulnerability at http://blog.senr.io/blog/devils-ivy-fla ... s-millions

Giving there isn't much information about the software on the cameras, I have to ask the question:

Are Amcrest cameras affected?

Thank you.

Re: IP3M-943B request for more information

Thanks for your reply, Melvin. I asked about 1) because the power adaptor has a house icon in its label which normally means indoor use, while the camera is for outdoor use. I know some Amcrest indoor cameras have lower specs, like "-10°C~+45°C," so if there is no other data available I wi...

Re: Constant Attempt to Connect to Dan Burkett

I read the full thread and I like to know if changing Default Gateway and/or DNS Servers in Network > TCP/IP in the camera to something like 192.168.0.254 (i.e. not the proper one -> 192.168.0.1) would be a workaround to impede outbound Internet traffic. Thank you.

IP3M-943B request for more information

Hi everyone. I hope a kind soul or some representative from Amcrest support could address my questions: 1) Camera's working environment spec says, "-30°C~+50°C" and that's great. Does anybody know what are the operating temperature specs for the power adaptor? 2) Camera came with 2.420.AC0...
