Closed-circuit television (CCTV) camera users: check with your vendor/manufacturer to see if they use software made by NUUO. A security researcher discovered a major software flaw, dubbed Peekaboo, that gives cyber criminals control of certain video surveillance cameras, allowing them to secretly monitor, tamper with, and even disable feeds. If you use the vulnerable devices, restrict and control network access to them to authorized and legitimate users only. The vendor's 9/18 update to firmware,, version 188.8.131.52, is supposed to patch the vulnerability.
The FBI has a new initiative to mitigate the cyber risk to U.S. elections. Their new site contains a collection of short videos with tips and best practices to protect your organization - even if you're not involved in elections.
The ACTIC and Urban Area Security Initiative issue this product to increase Arizona's awareness and cyber resilience. It's up to you to make sure you take the proper steps to secure your networks and devices. Although venders, products, and/or services may be mentioned, we do not endorse any specific one.
