Trendnet router validating identity
In most cases, Dunlap says, “if developers implemented secure coding practices from the very start, a significant number of Io T [Internet of Things] attacks would not exist today.” Where patches are not available, as is the case for TRENDnet and Dahua, Refirm advises people to sequester their cameras and routers away from internal networks, to limit their access to sensitive resources, or to remove them entirely until further notice.
Hi all, I just signed up (for my elderly mom) with Comcast for their hi-speed Internet service (performance level).
One way to restore networking, especially wireless, is to go into control panel, system and delete the network card. Since you mentioned that this notebook had previously been setup for multiple wireless profiles, my suggestion would be to delete all existing wireless profiles and see if that allows you to then create a new profile for the Comcast gateway.
I can't provide a screen shot to illustrate how to do that because I don't know if you are using the built-in Windows Wireless Zero Config, or a vendor specific utility for your unnamed Wi Fi card.
You can watch a demonstration of how hackers can take advantage of some of the bugs here.
If that does not help, then consider uninstalling the Wi Fi netcard.
Also, make sure that you are using WPA(2) Personal (PSK) for both the Comcast gateway, and for the Wi Fi client that you are setting up; don't try to use "WPA-Enterprise" or "802.1X" security because that almost certainly will require resources that you don't have (resources such as a security certificate for that connection).
Refirm is set to disclose this and other critical vulnerabilities affecting other devices, such as TRENDnet and Belkin routers as well as Dahua security cameras, on Wednesday.
Anyone could remotely view these and scores of other remote locales through a vulnerability affecting certain surveillance cameras manufactured by TRENDnet, a California-based gadget-maker, they said.
