Letter from the President: IP Camera Hack
Founded in 1990, TRENDnet has produced high quality networking hardware products for over 22 years. TRENDnet was also one of the first brands to launch IP Cameras to the market ten years ago. The TRENDnet brand is built on our ability to produce trusted networking solutions at a reasonable price.
It has come to TRENDnet’s attention that hackers may be able to gain unauthorized access to TRENDnet’s IP Camera video feeds for select models sold between April 2010 and February 2012. Contrary to many published articles, TRENDnet took immediate action to eliminate this threat.
TRENDnet immediately dedicated all resources to verify and quantify the scope of the hack. The discovery phase of this process is labor intensive and involves reviewing extensive code and testing a broad range of IP Cameras. As evidence of TRENDnet’s singular focus, we were able to release new firmware for 18 camera models within three weeks of discovery.
TRENDnet initiated following actions as of the day new firmware was completed and launched:
TRENDnet has made, in good faith, every effort to correct this situation and communicate with our customers. We sincerely apologize for this occurrence, and we will work earnestly to regain your trust.
