Protecting Your Ring Camera From Hackers Briant Communications

Amazons Ring Smart Doorbells and access control have been under scrutiny over the past couple of months because of lapses in security. Most customers have nothing to worry about thanks to several factors, including the scarcity of people with the expertise to be able to bypass the security settings which are in place if customers follow the installation instructions carefully. However, if you buy a Ring doorbell and dont update and personalise the security features its not very difficult for anyone with a mobile phone to be able to breech your home security systems.

As Smart devices, including home security and monitoring become ever more popular its natural that the number of devices which are installed poorly or not personalised at all is going to increase. Such an increase makes it possible for the wannabee hacker to travel around looking for systems worth infiltrating and exploiting.Controlling Who Can Go WhereYou can give access to your Ring account to a number of different people who will them be able to talk to visitors, let people in, and watch in real time as people move about from their phones or tablets.

It makes more sense to add users from an admin than give log in details to others, so for example if you have friends or family come to stay, or you want to give people staying at your house via AirBnB access, you can add them or remove them without having to pass on any log-in details.This is true for any phones or computers which get lost or stolen. As soon as you know a device is missing you can immediately disable its Ring access from your admin account meaning that it can no longer be used to gain access to your property.

Sharing ViolationsBecause data is money these days Ring made it possible to send your data to third parties in order them to direct targeted advertising at you via social media. However, a lot of people had a lot of quite reasonable concerns when it came to sharing information about your home security along with your location to companies who you had no connection with. That data sharing process is currently on hold until Ring are able to find a way for users to disable sharing via an on-device interface.

(Of course its quite reasonable to expect that nobody would willingly share this kind of data just to receive advertising messages, and if theyre confident people would want to then it should be an opt in, rather than an opt out.)Requiring Two Factor Authentication for any changesWe recently covered the story of a young girl who was harassed in her own bedroom by a hacker. Her mother recognised that she hadnt set up the security as per the instructions, but was naturally still upset that someone had invaded the familys privacy in order to play some kind of prank on the child.

Ring now requires two factor authentication, meaning that it is absolutely necessary to prove your authenticity before being able to access your account. No longer will people be able to slip past any authentication process by simply using the factory settings the device shipped with.Password Protection & SecurityWe always point out that any duplicated password is going to be far weaker than a unique, complex password.

If you use the same password for your pizza delivery account as you do for your home security youve no way of knowing what security measures the pizza delivery firm has in place, who your kids are allowing to know the password when theyre having a party and want to order in, and you probably dont care if its written down somewhere, either on a piece of paper or a note on your desktop. Problem is, if youre unfortunate enough to have your data breached it is passwords that youre known to use which are going to be tried first.The best thing to do to create and manage long, impossible to guess passwords is to use a password manager.

These themselves require a user name and password which you will have to remember, but they require two stage authentication and are thoroughly encrypted.Controlling Your Alerts Via Home Security DevicesWhen you install your Ring access control devices youll probably find it necessary to manage what sets the cameras rolling. For example, if your camera is positioned so that it takes in part of the street, a tree, or neighbours property you will no doubt want to ignore and certainly wont want to record.

Setting these privacy zones means that you wont get an alert for every passer-by, traffic, or wind moving the leaves, but you will be able to see these areas when the cameras motion detection is triggered by someone moving from a privacy zone into an active zone.People who want Ring Smart home security and access control but are unsure what installation entails should call Briant Communications.

Sextortion Against Ring and Nest Home Security Camera Owners Increases
Sextortion Against Ring and Nest Home Security Camera Owners Increases
A report published by cybersecurity firm Mimecast details a new sextortion campaign against users of some Internet of Things (IoT) devices, specifically the Google Nest and Ring home security systems. The report indicates that nearly 2,000 fraud attempts have already been detected in the US during the first days of January 2020.Kiri Addison, the firms director of data science, mentions that while this appears to be an ordinary extortion campaign, it has some distinctive features, such as the use of obfuscation methods to hide the origin of emails which complicates the identification of attempted extortion even for users familiar with cybersecurity issues. Like other sextortion campaigns, attackers send emails to victims claiming they have compromising footage that will be revealed unless a payment is made. The first message the victim receives only mentions the threat from hackers and does not contain details of any Bitcoin online wallet or other cryptocurrency to send the payment.Instead of receiving the information to make the payment, victims receive the login credentials to access the external email account where the alleged compromising footage is located, which is legitimate content directly downloaded from the Nest website. Hackers make victims believe that the videos found in this email account were extracted from their devices, says the cybersecurity expert.The attack does not end there; after that, the victim also receives the access keys to a third email account, where the hackers place the threat, claiming that the compromising video will be posted the following week unless a payment of 500 is made in Bitcoin or through gift cards for stores like Amazon or iTunes.Specialists from the International Institute of Cyber Security (IICS) claim that this group of attackers takes advantage of the growing number of hacking reports against such devices, as most users of IoT devices currently know the security risks when using these devices. On the other hand, Addison agrees with such a statement: With so many recently reported security incidents, its really easy to convince a user that their security cameras were hacked, the specialist concludes.Originally published at on January 14, 2020
