Release Date: May 15, 2017
Last week and over the weekend, hackers carried out a very large cyber attack that is affecting hundreds of thousands of computers in over 150 countries. The WannaCry ransom ware attack is being considered one of the largest the cyber community has ever seen.
Many LENSEC customers are concerned about the ransom ware attacks on their physical security systems. We share your concern and want to let you know how you can take measures to protect your systems from cyber attack.
This blog from Microsoft spells out the steps that you should take to stay protected. Microsoft is proving a security update for all customers to protect computers running the Windows platform, including Windows XP, Windows 8, and Windows Server 2003. According to Microsoft, the ransom ware attack is not affecting computers running Windows 10.
The security of your systems is an important matter. In addition to the WannaCry ransomware attack, another threat has been detected. Trend Micro announced the discovery of a new IoT botnet called Persirai. This botnet is targeting over 1000 IP camera models. This is affecting approximately 122,000 individual IP cameras.
Trend Micro is recommending that all users should change their default passwords as soon as possible and use a strong password for all of your IP cameras. In addition, users should disable UPnP on your routers to prevents devices within the network from opening ports to the external internet.
As a policy, when LENSEC consults with end-users and security integrators, we do not recommend or use default passwords on any end-user systems or equipment.
LENSEC values our customers and will continue to provide recommendations for supporting the security of your physical security systems. If you have questions about installation or maintenance for Perspective VMS™, our customer support staff is available to help with your technical needs.
