NAS devices: Research proves to be vulnerable to cyberattacks!

Obviously, not every machine or device connected to the Internet can be 100% secure. Firmware, hardware, or connectivity protocol vulnerabilities are often causes for device hacking and are detected on a daily basis. Now, regarding IoT (Internet of Things), the appropriate forecast for issues has not yet been made cybersecurity. 2013, conducted a research by the company Independent Security Evaluators (ISE), which revealed 52 vulnerabilities in 13 wireless SOHO routers and NAS devices. Sellers of which are Belkin, TP-Link, Asus and Linksys.


In a follow-up study, ISE reports that popular routers and NAS products have led to more than twice the number of security problems and vulnerability. These were discovered on 13 IoT devices. On 12 of the 13 devices, ISE managed to do so exploit routers and NAS devices and gain remote access. These vulnerabilities included SQL import problems, XSS forgery, and cross-site scripting (XSS) errors.

The ISE contacted the vendors directly and informed them of their vulnerabilities. The majority accepted the vulnerability reports and three of the vendors worked with ISE immediately to reduce the problems security. Unfortunately, there are some who have not even responded to the company about the findings of the vulnerabilities.


"The results of the research show that businesses and homes are still vulnerable to farms, which can cause significant damage. These issues are completely unacceptable to anyone online application.", said ISE researcher Rick Ramgattie.

It seems that the security of IoT devices has not improved significantly, even after trying to update vulnerabilities and launch programs. bug bounty.

Almost every week new attacks against connected devices take place. One such example we had seen a few days ago here and has to do with cyberattacks on gas pumps by his hackers Dark Web.
