Newest Version of Industry-Leading Solution Adds Capabilities for
Surveillance Cameras, Web Services and Enhanced Validation and Reporting
CORE Impact Pro 2013 R2 introduces new surveillance camera capabilities that test networked cameras for vulnerabilities and authentication weaknesses, which Impact can leverage to provide access to the compromised camera’s video feed. This version also extends the product’s web application testing capabilities to identify vulnerabilities in Web Services used in Web 2.0 and AJAX applications. In addition, the new version contains enhanced remediation and validation reporting. Impact 2013 R2 is supported by the company’s extensive library of more than 3,100 commercial-grade exploits and other attack techniques.
Millions of surveillance cameras are being added to networks at enterprises and organizations, globally. With the added ability to monitor activities comes the added risk of more potentially unprotected devices on the network. CORE Labs has done extensive research on surveillance camera vulnerabilities and has published several advisories on the subject. The added surveillance camera capabilities provide security professionals with the ability to fingerprint and assess the security posture of these devices, as they currently do with other networked devices.
“The new surveillance camera capabilities are a big step forward for the industry. Surveillance cameras are one of the fastest growing security measures being taken by the likes of public institutions like airports, as well as private institutions like financial institutions, large office buildings, and casinos. Technology innovations such as hi-def video and 360 degree field of view have led to these surveillance cameras becoming as capable as a standard PC – making them attractive targets for attackers to gain entry into the deepest part of IT infrastructure,” said
